Announcing quota management for Amazon Location Service

Amazon Location Service now supports quota management. Developers can create Amazon CloudWatch alarms that notify them when their usage of any API is close to their quota limit for that API. These alarms help developers ensure operational continuity, prevent service throttling, and protect from unintentional spend. Additionally, developers can use AWS Service Quotas to view, manage, and request quota increases, all in one user interface. For example, an eCommerce website can create a CloudWatch alarm to get notified when they have reached 80% usage on each of the Amazon Location APIs. When the alarm is initiated, they can request a quota increase to help scale their workloads, prevent their website from experiencing outages, and prevent a poor customer shopping experience.
