How do I upgrade?

Wowza Streaming Engine is the new name for our award-winning server software, Wowza Media Server®. Learn more about how to upgrade.

How many connections can one instance handle?

Wowza® does not impose limits on CPU or bandwidth. Wowza Streaming Engine can handle as many connections and streams as your server and network can handle.

What is an instance?

An instance is a single copy of Wowza Streaming Engine server software running on a single physical or virtual computer. When you install Wowza Streaming Engine for the first time, you start one instance.

How do I run multiple instances?

You can install multiple instances on physical computers or virtual machines using a single monthly license key. A monthly license allows you to scale up and down as demand dictates.

How is my usage calculated?

You will be billed monthly for the maximum number of active running instances and/or channels during the billing cycle. To prevent accruing monthly fees for instances or AddOns not being used, make sure to (1) turn unneeded instances off, and (2) disable the AddOns not in use.
