Does Elastic Load Balancing service limit traffic based on payload size?


I would like to implement an upload API to handle large files (i.e. 1GB+). The architecture that I have in mind looks like this (I am intentionally avoiding uploads to S3).

Enter image description here

I know that some services like the API Gateway limit request payloads to a maximum of 10MB per request. Does ELB impose a similar limitation that would make the above architecture unworkable?

Assuming it's an Application Load Balancer, it's fine if the backend is ECS.
Lambda has a 1MB limit (HTTP 413: Payload too large)

It is better to adjust the timeout value. Default is 60 seconds.
