AWS Lambda is now available in the Asia Pacific (Tokyo) region.

AWS Lambda is a compute service that runs your code in response to triggers and automatically manages the compute resources for you, making it easy to build applications that respond quickly to new information. AWS Lambda starts running your code within milliseconds of a trigger such as an image upload, in-app activity, website click, or output from a connected device. You can also use AWS Lambda to create new back-end services where compute resources are automatically triggered based on custom requests. With AWS Lambda you pay only for the requests served and the compute time required to run your code. Billing is metered in increments of 100 milliseconds, making it cost-effective and easy to scale automatically from a few requests per day to thousands per second.

AWS Lambda is currently available in the US East (N. Virginia), US West (Oregon), EU (Ireland), and Asia Pacific (Tokyo) regions. Please visit our product page for more information.
