Amazon 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 Amazon Web Services Region, but you can always raise these values by requesting a service quota increase.  

The new quotas apply in all Regions where Amazon Fargate is available including Amazon Web Services China (Beijing) Region, operated by Sinnet and Amazon Web Services China (Ningxia) Region, operated by NWCD. 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.
