AWS Batch increases compute and memory resource configurations for Fargate type jobs by 4X

AWS Batch customers can now submit Fargate type jobs to use up to 16 vCPUs, an approximately 4x increase from before. vCPUs are the primary compute resource in Fargate type Batch job. Larger vCPUs enable compute-heavy applications like machine learning inference, scientific modeling, and distributed analytics to more easily run on Fargate. In addition, customers can now provision up to 120 GiB of memory for Fargate type jobs, also a 4x increase from before. This helps their batch jobs better perform memory-intensive operations on Fargate. Larger vCPU and memory options may also make migration to serverless container compute simpler for jobs that need more compute resources and cannot be easily re-architected into smaller sized containers.
