With Service Quotas, you can view and manage your quotas easily and at scale as your AWS workloads grow. Quotas, also referred to as limits, are the maximum number of resources that you can create in an AWS account. AWS implements quotas to provide highly available and reliable service to all customers, and protect you from unintentional spend. Each quota starts with an AWS default value. Based on your needs, you can request to increase quota values for your specific account.

Service Quotas consolidates the AWS default values and your account specific values for quotas across AWS services in one single location, providing you with improved visibility. At launch, you can view default quotas for over 90 AWS services, with more coming soon. 

Service Quotas makes the process of requesting quota increases easier. You simply search for a quota and put in your desired value to submit a quota increase request. You can proactively manage your quotas by configuring Amazon CloudWatch alarms that monitor usage and alert you to approaching quotas. 

Service Quotas also integrates with AWS Organizations to help you easily set up quotas in new accounts. Using Service Quotas, you just configure a pre-defined quotas request template that will be applied to new accounts that you create via AWS Organizations. The template saves you time and effort in requesting quota increases while ensuring consistent configuration of new accounts in accordance with your workloads. 

You can access Service Quotas through the AWS console, and via AWS APIs and CLI. Service Quotas is available at no additional charge. 

Service Quotas is available in US East (N. Virginia), US East (Ohio), US West (N. California), US West (Oregon), Asia Pacific (Mumbai), Asia Pacific (Seoul), Asia Pacific (Singapore), Asia Pacific (Sydney), Asia Pacific (Tokyo), Asia Pacific (Osaka), Canada (Central), EU (Frankfurt), EU (Ireland), EU (London), EU (Paris) and South America (São Paulo).
