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 configure up to 10,240 MB of ephemeral storage for their Lambda functions, a 20x increase compared to the previous limit of 512 MB.
With this release, you can now control the amount of ephemeral storage a function gets for reading or writing data, allowing you to use Amazon Lambda for ETL jobs, ML inference, or other data-intensive workloads. You can configure ephemeral storage (/tmp) between 512 MB and 10,240 MB. You can set this in the Amazon Web Services Management Console, Amazon Web Services CLI, or Amazon Web Services SDK, Amazon Serverless Application Model, Amazon Lambda API, and Amazon CloudFormation. With 10 GB container image support, 10 GB function memory, and 10 GB of ephemeral function storage, you can support workloads such as using large temporal files, data and media processing, machine learning inference, and financial analysis.
