AWS Lambda Doubles Maximum Memory Capacity for Lambda Functions

Posted on: Nov 30, 2017

You can now allocate 3008MB of memory to your AWS Lambda functions. Previously, the maximum amount of memory available to your functions was 1536MB. Now, it's easier to process workloads with higher memory or denser compute requirements, such as big data analysis, large file processing, and statistical computations.

In the AWS Lambda resource model, you choose the amount of memory you want for your function which allocates proportional CPU power and other resources. This means you will have access to more compute power when you choose one of the new larger settings. You can set your memory in 64MB increments from 128MB to 3008MB. You access these settings when you create a function or update its configuration. The settings are available using the AWS Management Console, AWS CLI, or SDKs.

This feature is available in US East (N. Virginia), US East (Ohio), US West (N. California), US West (Oregon), AWS GovCloud (US), Canada (Central), South America (São Paulo), EU (Frankfurt), EU (Ireland), EU (London), Asia Pacific (Mumbai), Asia Pacific (Seoul), Asia Pacific (Singapore), Asia Pacific (Sydney), Asia Pacific (Tokyo), and China (Beijing).
