Quotas and region availability for Azure Kubernetes Service (AKS)

All Azure services include certain default limits and quotas for resources and features. The following sections detail the default resource limits for several Azure Kubernetes Service (AKS) resources, as well as the availability of the AKS service in Azure regions.

Service quotas and limits

Resource Default limit
Max clusters per subscription 100
Max nodes per cluster 100
Max pods per node: Basic networking with Kubenet 110
Max pods per node: Advanced networking with Azure CNI Azure CLI deployment: 301
Resource Manager template: 301
Portal deployment: 30

1 When you deploy an AKS cluster with the Azure CLI or a Resource Manager template, this value is configurable up to 110 pods per node. You can't configure max pods per node after you've already deployed an AKS cluster, or if you deploy a cluster using the Azure portal.
