Cloud Enterprise Network:CEN quotas

Last Updated:Jan 22, 2024

Alibaba Cloud sets default quotas on the cloud resources and API operations for each Alibaba Cloud account. This topic describes the quota items and their default values of Cloud Enterprise Network (CEN), as well as whether the quotas are adjustable.

Overview

Quotas are set on a per-region or per-account basis. Quotas are categorized into the following types:

  • General quotas: the limits on cloud resources that are available to an Alibaba Cloud account.

  • API rate limits: the limits on API calls that an Alibaba Cloud account can make within a specific period of time. API rate limits are also known as QPS limits.

  • Privileges: the permissions to use advanced features. Privileges are granted by Alibaba Cloud to an account.

Cloud Enterprise Network (CEN) is subject to general quotas, API rate limits, and privileges. You can apply for increases on some of the quotas. You can view and manage quotas in Alibaba Cloud Quota Center or in the CEN console. For more information about how to manage quotas, see Manage quotas.

General quotas

The following table describes the general quotas of CEN.

Note
  • This topic provides the default quota values for the service, and the actual default quota values may be different. The values in the Alibaba Cloud service console are the actual default quotas applied to your Alibaba Cloud account.

  • You can call the ListProductQuotas API operation to query the information about a quota by quota name or quota ID.
