VPN Gateway:IPsec-VPN quotas

Last Updated:Jul 02, 2024

Alibaba Cloud sets default quotas on the cloud resources and API operations for each Alibaba Cloud account. This topic describes the quota items related to IPsec-VPN connections and the default values of the quotas. This topic also describes 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 in a specific period of time. API rate limits are also known as queries per second (QPS) limits.

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

VPN Gateway is subject to general quotas and API rate limits. You can also apply for increases on some of the quotas. You can log on to the Quota Center console or VPC console to view quotas or request a quota increase. For more information about how to manage IPsec-VPN quotas, see Manage VPN Gateway quotas.

General quotas

The following table describes the general quotas of IPsec-VPN connections.

Note

The default values of quotas provided in this topic are for reference only. The default values of quotas in the console prevail.

vpn_quota_instances_num

Maximum number of VPN gateways that you can create within each Alibaba Cloud account

30

Note

This quota is determined only by the number of Alibaba Cloud accounts and is irrelevant to regions or VPCs.

For example, for each Alibaba Cloud account:

  • You can create up to 30 VPN gateways for one VPC in one region.

  • You can create a total of up to 30 VPN gateways for multiple VPCs in multiple regions.

Maximum bandwidth supported by a VPN gateway

1000 Mbit/s

Note

The maximum bandwidth supported by VPN gateways in some regions is 500 Mbit/s. For more information about the regions, see the Limits section of the "Create and manage a VPN gateway" topic.

No

You can increase the bandwidth of an IPsec-VPN connection by using other methods. For more information, see the How do I increase the maximum bandwidth of IPsec-VPN connections? section of the "FAQ about VPN gateways" topic.

200,000

Note

A network 5-tuple uniquely identifies a connection. A 5-tuple includes a source IP address, a destination IP address, a source port number, a destination port number, and the protocol in use. The connections can be established by using the TCP, UDP, and ICMP protocols.
