Step functions versus SQS

If we dive deep into how the step functions are different from SQS in terms of features and possible use cases, we can say that SQS is most suitable for short, simple, low-priority tasks that can come in very large volumes (millions of tasks per day). Step functions, on the other hand, are most suitable for cases where we have complex multi-step processes, which can take a lot of time and where we would like to guarantee delivery of every task (thousands of tasks per day). In the next section, you will learn how to create an AWS Step Functions connection to AWS Lamda using the AWS Console.
