Sometimes it's better to run multiple instances of Wowza Media Server™ on a single computer rather than running one large instance with multiple virtual hosts. For example:
- Available resources are wasted because they can't be used by a single instance.
- Your streaming workflow involves a custom design that won't work using a single instance.
- You're testing a multiple-server deployment on a single computer.
This article describes how to run multiple instances of Wowza Media Server on one computer. All Wowza Media Server instances must be properly licensed.
