AWS Fargate recently increased default service quotas to 500 and starting today you can launch up to 1000 concurrent Amazon Elastic Container Service (ECS) tasks and Amazon Elastic Kubernetes Service (EKS) pods running on Fargate On-Demand and 1000 concurrent Amazon ECS tasks running on Fargate Spot. These are default quotas (also commonly known as limits) for an account in a given AWS Region, but you can always raise these values even further to meet your application needs by requesting a quota increase. This makes it even more seamless to run your workloads at scale on Fargate, the serverless compute engine for containers that works with Amazon ECS, Amazon EKS, and AWS Batch.

The new quotas apply in all Regions where Fargate is available. The higher quotas are reflected in your account automatically and you do not have to take any action. If your account has an approved quota that is higher than the new default quota, you will continue to have that higher applied quota.

You can use the AWS Service Quotas console to view and request increases for your quotas, and retrieve usage metrics using the Amazon CloudWatch console. For details about viewing and managing Fargate service quotas, see Amazon ECS and Amazon EKS documentation pages. To learn more about Service Quotas, visit the Service Quotas documentation page.
