AWS how to increase EIP quota

For self-hosted customers in AWS, your EKS cluster requires at least one address to be assigned during cluster operation for an outbound NAT gateway (AWS charges may apply, check with your AWS or Release salesperson). The cluster and services inside the cluster use the NAT IP as an egress point for all traffic going to the internet. This gateway allows you to monitor, secure, limit, and whitelist outgoing traffic from your cluster.

By default, your AWS account is limited to a maximum of five static VPC Elastic IP (EIP) addresses. If you need more EIP addresses, you will need to open an AWS support case.

AWS charges may be incurred for increasing quota limits, and you may even need to pay for AWS support in your account if it is not enabled. Please check with your AWS or Release salesperson if you have any concerns or questions about billing.

We recommend allocating additional EIP addresses in batches of five. Most Release customers request the VPC EIP limit to be increased to 10, 15, or 20.

We cannot open tickets to increase limits or quotas, or raise support issues on your behalf, although we are happy to guide you through the process.

The image below should guide you in how to increase the VPC EIP quota for your account. Be sure to select the correct region, limit type, and quota value.

AWS quotas are sometimes limited according to a particular region. Please ensure you choose the correct limits and region for your cluster in your request.
