Hi, I'd like to make sure I am getting my pricing correct. Here is a hypothetical situation:
a) I need to store approximately 6TB of movies on the cloud. For that, I plan to use Amazon S3.
b) Based on subscriber data that I have, I expect, monthly there will be a total of 200TB of data out that I expect from the S3 server to various subscribers as they stream these movies
c) Next, I also need to host Wowza instances.
I was told that each Wowza instance, on an EC2 small config can handle approx 100 simultaneous sessions at 1Mbps each.
However, in my case, if I am already paying S3 for the bandwidth usage, do I need to worry about load with my Wowza instances as much? My assumption is the Ec2 instances running Wowza will not be streaming the actual content - S3 will. Wowza will more or less be the control side of things. Is this correct?
