Streaming media scenarios - Streaming Media Lens

Streaming media scenarios

This section addresses common streaming media scenarios, with a focus on how each scenario impacts the architecture of your workload. These examples are not exhaustive, but encompass common patterns we encounter in practice. We present a background on each scenario, general considerations for the design of the workload, and a reference architecture of how the scenarios should be implemented. 

Though there are many approaches to designing video delivery workloads on AWS, these scenarios prefer AWS Media Services when possible to reduce operational overhead. We encourage you to evaluate the technology architecture that best meets your needs, whether it is an AWS Media Service, a service from the AWS Partner Network, or a proprietary component.
