Pay as You Go
No long-term commitment required
Spin up Wowza Streaming Cloud whenever you need it, and change your plan anytime. Wowza Streaming Cloud does not require a long-term contract, making it ideal for occasional users.
No Infrastructure Necessary
Don't spend money on infrastructure you don't need. With Wowza Streaming Cloud maintaining your own servers and hiring streaming experts isn't necessary, which helps keep your costs low.
Pricing Options That Suit Your Needs
Simply pick your plan based on anticipated usage. Never pay for overages—instead, you receive a discounted rate for extra processing time or delivery bandwidth if you exceed what’s included in your plan. New 24x7 and passthrough billing plans give you even greater flexibility.
Live Streaming from Wowza Streaming Engine
The Stream Targets feature in Wowza Streaming Engine Manager gives you options to control your transcoding workload:
Transcode in the cloud by sending one high-quality live stream from Wowza Streaming Engine to Wowza Streaming Cloud, which then transcodes the stream and delivers the adaptive bitrate renditions to viewers.
Transcode on your own server and send the transcoded renditions to Wowza Streaming Cloud for CDN delivery. This configuration is ideal for Wowza Streaming Engine server configurations that have high available bandwidth and sufficient CPU resources.
