I'v been using the EC2 Wowza service for some time. Most of my users are located in Israel and the closest I can place the wowza instance is in Europe which still results in considerable audio/video delays for some users. Therefore, I've decided to place my wowza streaming server in Israel which should help with cutting the delays.
Since Amazon do not have a site in Israel I plan to stop the EC2 instance and instead host a windows server in Israel and install wowza on it independently.
1. When I went to check the cost of a wowza license (per month) I found that there is a different cost for Server/Transcoder/nDVR/DRM. My understanding is that in order to get a similar usability to what I got from my EC2 instance I only need a license to a server instance (55$/month) and none of the others. Can you please confirm that?
2. I'm open to other ideas how I can have a wowza server in Israel or nearby if you have any (maybe you work with other cloud providers who do have a site in the area??)
