Thanks for your article. I think there is also a more technical reason to this /24 limit, related to reverse DNS. When a /24 or more is assigned, the associated reverse DNS zones are also assigned. These reverse DNS zones have a fixed size of a /24.
While the DNS reverse lookup decision is related to this, it has no bearing on the original choice for a /24 when using BGP for public network advertisements on the internet. The reverse lookup zones have a fixed size of /24 because if they were any larger you could potentially have a reverse lookup zone with multiple owners (because it crosses multiple /24 network boundaries).
Hi, My short answer regarding why /24 is the smallest IPv4 range you can bring to AWS is that, regardless of any cloud provider, all the ISPs have BGP policies which accept smallest IPv4 as /24 anything smaller than this is not accepted over eBGP from peers even if accepted not re-advertised with proper tagging. This is not a protocol limitation rather the agreement among ISP and NSPs. I hope that helps
