Amazon Elastic Container Service (Amazon ECS) today increased the default service quotas for ECS tasks per service and services per cluster. You can now launch up to 5,000 tasks per service and 5,000 services per cluster, an increase from 2,000 each.

The new limits apply in all regions where Amazon ECS is available. The higher limits are reflected in your account automatically and you do not have to take any action. If your account has an approved limit that is higher than the new limit, you will continue to have the higher limit. For more information, please see the ECS service quota documentation.
