Wowza loadbalancing on AWS with shared mediacache store for VOD


we are using a standalone wowza 4.2 server with a cache storage on S3 (via s3fs, yeah I know)

We would like to have a better stack with at least 3 servers loadbalanced using the same cache storage

We are providing only VOD videos

We are looking for someone who can do that job (wowza config and cloudformation templates or other configuration tool - or a howto in order to simplify wowza version updates).

Thanks !


We’ll be happy to look into your current setup, and see how it can be improved or re-designed. Don’t hesitate to contact us by email, or me directly on Skype (ID: karelboek)

Kind Regards,

Wowza updates have been simplified recently, but there is always a possibility to streamline the process even further. We have a lot of experience with load balancing, both via Wowza’s load balancer and external load balancing software, and have also worked a lot with AWS and content on S3.

As you mentioned yourself, having media cache store on S3 may not be the best choice, but this is something we can discuss in more details. Feel free to contact us at - we’d be happy to help you.

Kind regards,


Just wanted to mention that I was doing exactly same setups previously so can also assist with this task :slight_smile:
