How to change Windows Azure default quota settings?

When an Azure account (or subscription) is set up, the following default quota limits are applied for each billing account:

  • A maximum of 5 storage services
  • A maximum of 20 Hosted Services
  • Each Hosted Service comes with two deployment slots: staging and production
  • Each deployment slot can have up to a maximum of 5 roles (any combination of web, worker, CGI, etc.)
  • At any instance, there can only be 20 cores running. This is equivalent to 20 “small” roles or 10 “medium” roles or 5 “large” roles or 2 “x-large” roles.
  • 100 TB of Windows Azure Storage per account

The above constraints can be lifted by submitting a service request to Azure support at
