Increasing Your Amazon AppStream Service Limits

Your streaming application has a service limit of up to five concurrent streaming sessions:

  • Up to two concurrent streaming application deployments that use the interactive wizard.

  • Up to three streaming applications in the Building, Active, and Error states. For more information about these states, seeAmazon AppStream Application Lifecycle.

This means that your streaming application can stream to a maximum of five users at any given time. New AWS accounts that have not previously used the Amazon AppStream service may have a lower limit for the number of simultaneous streaming sessions. If you need more simultaneous connections, you can request a service limit increase by starting a new case at the Support Center .

Before contacting the Support Center, you should gather the following information:

  • The number of simultaneous sessions you need

  • Expected date on which you need your new limit.

  • How many months the limit needs to be in effect.

  • A description of your use case.
