    Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2) is a cloud-computing platform that virtualizes computing resources as virtual machines. A single virtual machine configuration is registered as an item called an Amazon Machine Image (AMI). This article provides the public AMIs that are preconfigured with Wowza Streaming Engine™ 4.1.1. You can select one of the preconfigured AMIs to automatically launch a Wowza Streaming Engine 4.1.1 for EC2 instance in EC2 Management Console.

    Note: To get AMIs that are preconfigured with an earlier version of Wowza Streaming Engine media server software, see the AMI Archive.

    AMI Types

    Wowza® provides two collections of pre-built AMIs, which are based on the licensing model option that's used.

    Option 1: Bring Your Own (LicKey)

    The LicKey License option enables you to use your regular subscription or perpetual license key with your Wowza Streaming Engine for Amazon EC2 instance. When using this option, billing for your running instance time and bandwidth consumption is managed by Amazon. Wowza Streaming Engine subscription users will continue to receive a separate monthly invoice from Wowza for usage of the Wowza Streaming Engine software. This option provides access to all Wowza Streaming Engine functionality, including Wowza Transcoder (for 64-bit instances only), Wowza nDVR, and Wowza DRM.

    Option 2: DevPay

    The DevPay License option enables you to use a Wowza Streaming Engine software license that's embedded in a pre-built Amazon DevPay AMI (a separate license isn't needed). This option provides the convenience of a combined monthly invoice from Amazon for running instance time, bandwidth consumption, and Wowza Streaming Engine usage; however, it doesn't allow usage of the Wowza Transcoder, Wowza nDVR, and Wowza DRM features.

    For more information about service, signup, and pricing, see Deployment Through Amazon Web Services (AWS).

    Wowza Streaming Engine 4 LicKey Licensing

    Wowza Streaming Engine Version: Wowza Streaming Engine 4.1.1 build 13180 (December 02, 2014)
    The LicKey License option enables you to use your regular subscription or perpetual license key with your Wowza Streaming Engine for EC2 instance. When using this option, billing for your running instance time and bandwidth consumption is managed by Amazon. Wowza Streaming Engine subscription users will continue to receive a separate monthly invoice from Wowza for usage of the Wowza Streaming Engine software. This option provides access to all Wowza Streaming Engine functionality, including Wowza Transcoder (for 64-bit instances only), Wowza nDVR, and Wowza DRM.

    Note: If you're signed-in to EC2 Management Console, clicking an AMI ID will launch the associated Wowza Streaming Engine for EC2 instance in the selected region and the Choose an Instance Type page will be displayed. For details about how to configure the instance in EC2 Management Console, see the Wowza Streaming Engine for Amazon EC2 User's Guide.
