AWS Lambda now supports configuring up to 10,240 MB of ephemeral storage for functions in 6 additional regions - Asia Pacific (Hyderabad), Asia Pacific (Jakarta), Asia Pacific (Melbourne), Europe (Spain), Europe (Zurich) and Middle East (UAE). This feature makes it easier to build and run data intensive workloads with Lambda functions.

With this release, you can now control the amount of ephemeral storage a function uses for reading or writing data, enabling you to use Lambda functions for workloads like ETL jobs, financial computations and machine learning inferences. You can configure ephemeral storage (/tmp) between 512 MB and 10,240 MB using the AWS Management Console, AWS CLI, AWS Serverless Application Model (AWS SAM), AWS Cloud Development Kit (AWS CDK), the AWS Lambda API and AWS CloudFormation.
