Service quotas define the maximum number of resources that an Alibaba Cloud account can use, or the maximum number of operations that an Alibaba Cloud account can perform. This topic describes the quota items and their default values of Global Accelerator (GA). This topic also describes whether the quotas are adjustable.

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 in 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.

GA provides general quotas and allows you to adjust some quotas. You can log on to the Quota Center console or Global Accelerator console to view or adjust quotas. For more information, see Manage quotas.
