    Default Wowza on Azure vs Azure Media Services

    I'm confused about the relationship between Wowza and Azure Media Services. In looking at the overview for Azure Media Services, the features seem very similar to Wowza.

    On the other hand, I've read about Wowza support for Azure Media Services. What is the nature of this support? How does the combination of Wowza + Azure Media Services differ from standalone Azure Media Services?

    Hi Hobbes,

    Thanks for your interest in Wowza running on Azure. Wowza Streaming Engine is currently not available on Azure Media Services. However, many customers are running Wowza Streaming Engine on Azure VMs.

    Depending on your needs, either Azure Media Services or Wowza Streaming Engine may be able to help. To your point, there are many similar features. Primary differences are in how you access the functionality, streaming formats supported, extensibility, and more-granular feature differentiation.

    If you need more information about specific features or capabilities that you are comparing, please feel free to send follow-up questions to support@wowza.com.
