Not sure I get it. If my service layer is completely maintainable, indepedent services and very easy to maintain taking only a few minutes to deploy and has no bugs, AWS still won't let me deploy it if it uses 201 resources. This seems like dogma or am I wrong?

    Service limits are usually nor hard limit s, but can be raised with a support request. Most likely this is either to protect their SLA or to stop you from a stupid common behaviour

The 200 limit can be raised, however this is a grinding process that can take months. You work through customer support to get "elevated" as a client to more AWS privileges.

Resources: - Worked under a company that specifically ran into this problem, took 8 months before that limit was lifted.

  • Gee, 8 months. There must be some really weird effects larger amount of resources have
