AWS Lambda larger functions are now available in 3 additional regions enabling customers to provision Lambda functions with a maximum of 10,240 MB (10 GB) of memory, a more than 3x increase compared to the previous limit of 3,008 MB. With larger functions, customers can now more easily use AWS Lambda for workloads such as batch, extract, transform, load (ETL) jobs, and media processing applications perform memory intensive operations at scale.  

Since Lambda allocates CPU power proportional to the amount of memory provisioned, customers now have access to up to 6 vCPUs. This helps compute intensive applications like machine learning, modelling, genomics, and high-performance computing (HPC) application perform faster.

Today’s launch adds Middle East (Bahrain), Asia Pacific (Osaka), and Asia Pacific (Hong Kong) to the list of regions where AWS Lambda larger functions are already available.
