Amazon Lambda customers in the Amazon Web Services China (Beijing) Region, operated by Sinnet and Amazon Web Services China (Ningxia) Region, operated by NWCD can now 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 Amazon 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.

To get started, customers can configure between 128 MB and 10,240 MB of memory, in 1MB increments, for new or existing Lambda functions via the Amazon Web Services Management Console, Amazon Web Services Command Line Interface (CLI), Amazon Web Services SDK, and Amazon Serverless Application Model (SAM).
