Learn about hard and soft limits for VPC options.
- [Instructor] One common misconception … in operating in the cloud … is that you can build anything that you want, … and you really can't. … Remember the definition of cloud. … It's just a data center somewhere, … and that data center does have limits. … So when you start building resources at AWS, … there is something called a soft limit. … There is a definition of what you can do … and how much you can order. … It's a soft limit, … which means you can change it a lot of the times. … So every resource that you order at AWS, … or for any cloud provider, has a defined limit. … A soft limit can be changed, … but a hard limit can't be changed. … The good news is there's not many hard limits at AWS. … For example, you can only have so many NACLs. … You can only have so many security groups, … but in the case of building instances, … they'll gladly give you as many as you want. … You'll just have to communicate that with them. … So limits for new customers, you can think of them as … saving you from yourself. …
