I have built an EC2 machine that is working perfectly for a VOD application using a S3 repository and a local disk with MediaCache ... now I need to scale that. My current option (based on my little experience with AWS services and mainly with Wowza) is:
1. Take a snapshot from my current machine;
2. Configure CloudWatch to launch a new machine using my snapshot/AMI;
3. Use a startup script to create, format and mount my cache disk at this new machine;
4. Launch my configured Wowza using this new disk.
Is this my best option (considering costs, performance, etc) or should I take a look at something else?
