You can now configure your AWS Lambda functions to run up to 15 minutes per execution. Previously, the maximum execution time (timeout) for a Lambda function was 5 minutes. Now, it is easier than ever to perform big data analysis, bulk data transformation, batch event processing, and statistical computations using longer running functions. 

You can now set the timeout value for a function to any value up to 15 minutes. When the specified timeout is reached, AWS Lambda terminates execution of your Lambda function. As a best practice, you should set the timeout value based on your expected execution time to prevent your function from running longer than intended.

This feature is available in all regions where AWS Lambda is available, including AWS China (Beijing) Region operated by Sinnet and AWS China (Ningxia) Region operated by NWCD. Please visit our product page for more information about AWS Lambda or log in to the AWS Lambda console to get started.
