Amazon Simple Notification Service (Amazon SNS) has enhanced its integration with AWS Service Quotas. Previously, you could use AWS Service Quotas to view the default quotas of Amazon SNS. Now, with the enhanced integration, you can view your account-specific quota overrides as well as submit your quota increase requests for Amazon SNS. The quota increase requests for 'Messages Published per Second', 'Number of Topics per Account', 'Filter Policies per Account', and 'Filter Policies per Topic' are processed automatically, speeding up approval times.

Moreover, you can now view the applied Amazon SNS quotas for your AWS account per AWS Region, view your utilization metrics per quota, and create Amazon CloudWatch alarms to notify you when your utilization of a given quota exceeds your configurable threshold. This enables you to more precisely adapt your utilization of Amazon SNS based on your applied quotas.

Amazon SNS is a messaging service for Application-to-Application (A2A) and Application-to-Person (A2P) communication. The A2A functionality provides high-throughput, push-based, many-to-many messaging between distributed systems, microservices, and event-driven serverless applications. These applications include Amazon Simple Queue Service, Amazon Kinesis Data Firehose, AWS Lambda, and HTTP/S endpoints. The A2P functionality enables you to communicate with your customers via mobile text messages (SMS), mobile push notifications, and email notifications.

Amazon SNS enhanced quota management is now available in all AWS Regions where AWS Service Quotas is available, at no additional costs.
