    With the Stream Targets feature in Wowza Streaming Engine™ live streaming software (version 4.3 and later), you can use the Wowza Streaming Cloud™ service like a CDN. This workflow doesn't use the Wowza Streaming Cloud transcoder; instead, you can perform the transcoding in a Wowza Streaming Engine instance to take advantage of media servers with high bandwidth availability and hardware performance. This workflow enables you to send a single untranscoded stream or a group of transcoded renditions to Wowza Streaming Cloud CDN endpoints and use the Wowza Streaming Cloud edge network to deliver the stream to viewers. For more information, see How to scale Wowza Streaming Engine with Wowza Streaming Cloud CDN delivery.

    Wowza Streaming Engine software (version 4.2 and later) also has a stream target option that enables you to easily send a live stream from a Wowza Streaming Engine instance to the Wowza Streaming Cloud service, which automatically transcodes and delivers the stream to viewers. For more information, see How to send a live stream to Wowza Streaming Cloud for transcoding.
