Amazon Textract is a machine learning service that automatically extracts text, handwriting, and data from any document or image. Today, we’re excited to announce self-service quota management support for Amazon Textract through enhanced integration with AWS Service Quotas, a new self-service Amazon Textract quota calculator, and higher default Transactions Per Second (TPS) throughput quotas in select AWS Regions. Below is a detailed description of these new capabilities and enhancements:

Enhanced integration with AWS Service Quotas - Customers told us they want to easily self-manage TPS configuration changes and want quicker turnaround times to process their quota increase requests so they can continue to scale their Amazon Textract usage. With this launch, you can now proactively manage all your Amazon Textract service quotas via the AWS Service Quotas console. Using Service Quotas, your quota increase requests can now be processed automatically, speeding up approval times in most cases. In addition to viewing default quota values, you can now view the applied quota values for your accounts in a specific region, the historical utilization metrics per quota, and set up alarms to notify you when the utilization of a given quota exceeds a configurable threshold.

Launch of Textract Service Quota Calculator - You can now use the Amazon Textract Quota Calculator to easily estimate the quota requirements for your workload prior to submitting a quota increase request directly from the AWS Service Quotas console.

Increased default service quotas for Amazon Textract - Amazon Textract now has higher default service quotas for several asynchronous and synchronous API operations in multiple major AWS Regions. Specifically, higher default service quotas are now available for AnalyzeDocument and DetectDocumentText API asynchronous and synchronous operations in US East (Ohio), US East (N. Virginia), US West (Oregon), Asia Pacific (Mumbai), and Europe (Ireland) Regions. For example, the default TPS quota value for the synchronous AnalyzeDocument API in US East (Ohio) has increased by 900% to 10 TPS. Similarly, the default TPS quota value for the asynchronous StartDocumentTextDetection API in Asia Pacific (Mumbai) has increased by 400% to 5 TPS. In effect, customers using Textract in these Regions will receive a 50%-900% increase in the default quota values across these API operations. A table summarizing the before and after default quota values can be found in our blog. The new default values have automatically been applied to all accounts and no further action is required to obtain them.

Amazon Textract self-service quota management and the quota calculator are now available in all AWS Regions where Amazon Textract is available at no additional cost.
