DynamoDB Tables Quota Increase Limits


For any AWS account, there is an initial DynamoDB table quota of 2,500 tables per AWS Region. One can request a service quota increase using the support page.

Can one assume that requests will always be approved? Can a service design assume an unlimited number of tables? Otherwise, is there a limit to the quota increase for DynamoDB tables?

One should not assume it will always be approved. Justification must be provided. The table count limit is there as a nudge toward best practices, which usually doesn't involve multiple thousands of tables unless there's been careful consideration of alternative designs first.
