Amazon VPC Limits

The following table lists the limits related to Amazon VPC. Unless indicated otherwise, you can request an increase for any of these limits by using the Amazon VPC Limits form.

ComponentLimitComments

VPCs per region

5

This limit can be increased upon request.

Subnets per VPC

200

This limit can be increased upon request.

Internet gateways per region

5

This limit is directly correlated with your 'VPCs per region' limit. You cannot increase this limit individually; the only way to increase this limit is to increase your 'VPCs per region' limit. Only one Internet gateway can be attached to a VPC at a time.

Virtual private gateways per region

5

Only one virtual private gateway can be attached to a VPC at a time.

Customer gateways per region

50

This limit can be increased upon request.

VPN connections per region

50

10 per virtual private gateway.

Route tables per VPC

200

Including the main route table. You can associate one route table to one or more subnets in a VPC.

Entries per route table

50

This is the limit for the number of non-propagated entries per route table. This limit can be increased upon request; however, network performance may be impacted.

Elastic IP addresses per region for each AWS account

5

This is the limit for the number of VPC Elastic IPs you can allocate within a region. This is a separate limit from the EC2 Elastic IP address limit.

Security groups per VPC

100

This limit can be increased upon request; however, network performance may be impacted, depending on the way the security groups are configured.

Rules per security group

50

This limit can be increased or decreased upon request, however, the multiple of 'rules per security group' and 'security groups per network interface' cannot exceed 250. For example, if you want 100 rules per security group, we’d decrease your number of security groups per network interface to 2.

Security groups per network interface

5

This limit can be increased or decreased upon request; however, the multiple of ‘security groups per network interface’ and ‘rules per security group’ cannot exceed 250. For example, if you want 10 security groups per network interface, we’d decrease your number of rules per security group to 25.

Network ACLs per VPC

200

You can associate one network ACL to one or more subnets in a VPC. This limit is not the same as the number of rules per network ACL.

Rules per network ACL

40

This is the sum of both ingress and egress rules in a single network ACL, where the limit for ingress rules is 20, and the limit for egress rules is 20.

BGP Advertised Routes per VPN Connection

100

This limit can be increased upon request; however, network performance may be impacted.

Active VPC peering connections per VPC

50

This limit can be increased via special request to AWS Developer Support. The maximum limit is 125 peering connections per VPC. The number of entries per route table should be increased accordingly; however, network performance may be impacted.

Outstanding VPC peering connection requests

25

This is the limit for the number of outstanding VPC peering connection requests that you've requested from your account. This limit can be increased via special request to AWS Developer Support.

Expiry time for an unaccepted VPC peering connection request
