AWS Shield Expands Default Resource Limits For Advanced Protection

AWS Shield is managed Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) protection service which secure applications functional on AWS. AWS Shield has two layers - Standard and Advanced. Now AWS Shield Advanced can be use to get improved DDoS protection for further resources. Earlier, you can protect up to 1000 resources of all supported resource type Amazon CloudFront distributions, Elastic Load Balancing load balancers, Amazon Route 53 hosted zones, Elastic IP addresses and AWS Global Accelerator accelerators. Now, with this limit expansion you can protect up to 5000 resources : 1000 Amazon CloudFront distributions, 1000 Elastic Load Balancing load balancers (Classic Load Balancers + Application Load Balancers), 1000 Amazon Route 53 hosted zones, 1000 Elastic IP addresses (can be associated with Network Load Balancers or Amazon EC2 instances) and 1000 AWS Global Accelerator accelerators. By default, current users of AWS Shield Advanced acquire their current limits automatically raised to 1000 for each resource type. If you need to expand these limits beyond 1000 each, then submit a ticket through the AWS Support Center.
