We would like to create a new high availability Wowza streaming infrastructure and I would like to know some details regarding the setup that i should choose.
Our main service is VOD so what should I prefer, wowza streaming engine or wowza media server? As I understand the first is the newest and supports everything.
A second question is what is the best setup scenario for my setup for the balancer? I'm thinking to set the origin server as balancer too ,is there a way to use the edges servers as balancers? is it possible the balancing service to running on two edge servers on a active-passive setup?
My last question is which are the steps for the setup I've describe before, I need to install the wowza streaming engine on all edge servers and on the origin too? is there a network diagram for such as setup?
Thanks in advance,
