Today, AWS Batch is available in the Africa (Cape Town) and the Asia-Pacific (Osaka) Regions.  

AWS Batch enables developers, scientists, and engineers to easily and efficiently run hundreds of thousands of batch computing jobs on AWS. AWS Batch dynamically provisions the optimal quantity and type of compute resources (e.g., CPU or memory optimized instances) based on the volume and specific resource requirements of the batch jobs submitted. With AWS Batch, there is no need to install batch computing software or manage server clusters that you use to run your jobs, allowing you to focus on analyzing results and solving problems. AWS Batch plans, schedules, and executes your batch computing workloads across multiple compute services and features, such as AWS Fargate, Amazon EC2 and Spot Instances.

There is no additional charge for AWS Batch. You only pay for the AWS resources (e.g. EC2 instances or Fargate jobs) you create to store and run your batch jobs.

With today’s launch, AWS Batch is now available in all 25 launched AWS Regions.
