We are currently running wowza an amazone ec2 instance (g2.2xlarge) for an application the live streams (one to many)… similar to periscope. The current instance runs about $500 a month, but wanted to know if would be a better value to run (2) c4.2xlarge instances instead which are $225 each a month and split the load. Would it be a better value as it’s about the same price, any experiences or other recommendations? with transcoding
Finding the g2.2xlarge can get to about 25 outgoing streams and about 100 viewers before it starts to get choppy.
