AWS Fargate, the serverless compute engine for containers that works with both Amazon Elastic Container Service (ECS) and Amazon Elastic Kubernetes Service (EKS), increases the default service quotas (also commonly known as limits) for On-Demand and Spot resource counts. You can now launch up to 500 concurrent ECS tasks and EKS pods running on Fargate On-Demand and 500 concurrent ECS tasks running on Fargate Spot, up from 100 and 250 respectively. These are default quotas for an account in a given AWS Region, but you can always raise these values by requesting a service quota increase.

The new quotas apply in all Regions where AWS 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 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 ECS and EKS documentation pages. To learn more about Service Quotas, visit the Service Quotas documentation page.
