AWS Cloud Map increases default limit



AWS Cloud Map increases default limit of service instances that can be registered in a namespace with API calls discovery from 2,000 to 6,000\. AWS Cloud Map is a cloud resource discovery service. With AWS Cloud Map, you can define custom names for your application resources, such as Amazon Elastic Container Services (Amazon ECS) tasks, Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2) instances, Amazon DynamoDB tables, or other cloud resources. You can then use these custom names to discover the location and metadata of cloud resources from your applications using AWS SDK and authenticated API queries. The increased limit applies to new AWS Cloud Map namespaces with API calls discovery. These namespaces are used with Amazon ECS Service Connect, and now you can run up to 6,000 Amazon ECS tasks in a single Amazon ECS Service Connect namespace without requesting additional limit increases. To learn more, please refer to the AWS Cloud Map [documentation]( To see all of the Regions where AWS Cloud Map is available, see the [AWS Region table](/about-aws/global-infrastructure/regional-product-services/). _**3/1/2023** \- This post was initially published on 2/10/2023 stating a new default limit of 20,000, and has been updated to reflect the actual default limit of 6,000._
