500 kbps + 1000 kbps + 2000 kbps = 3500 kbps | 3500 kbps /3 = 1166.6 Kbps 500 connections with an average bitrate of 1166.6 Kbsp = 583300 Kbps == 583.3 Mbps == 262 Gig per hour 1000 connections with an average bitrate of 1166.6 Kbsp = 1166600 Kbps == 1.166 Gbps == 524 Gig per hour 2000 connections with an average bitrate of 1166.6 Kbsp = 2333200 Kbps == 2.332 Gbps == 1048 Gig per hour

What real world performance should I expect from the c3.8xlarge 10 Gigabit*4 network interfaces?
Am I right in assuming that the use of the Dynamic Load Balancing AddOn has the potential of escalating my Wowza license costs, as well as the number of Amazon instance hours? Instead of needing a single Wowza license like I would if I could stay on a single instance, I would need four licenses if I wanted three Edge/Load Balancer Senders:
Then there is the natural limitation of the Dynamic Load Balancing AddOn. It does balance the number of connected viewers between a fixed number of instances, and does this very well as far as I can tell from the feedback I have read and heard. It does not however, do anything when it comes to an origin instance that's struggling to cope with too many incoming streams that has to be transcoded on the server.
But AWS Elastic Load Balancing + Auto Scaling would, right? I'm not quite sure if I understand the concepts of Amazons Elastic Load Balancing and Auto Scaling fully, but I imagine that it can indeed help the instance handling the incoming streams and transcoding to never trespass a CPU-utilization limit set in CloudWatch.
Is that also correct?
What about cost for an AWS Elastic Load Balancing + Auto Scaling solution? I imagine I would only pay for the instance hours when they are actually needed? And what about Wowza licenses? Would the solution mean that only a single Wowza license is needed? Or would each instance that "helps" need to be preconfigured with a license?
