You can use Wowza 2 for EC2 to stream media directly from Amazon Simple Storage Service (S3). Wowza Media Server 2 employs a read through local disk cache to improve the performance of streaming media from S3. The configuration of the caching mechanism is done automatically and is adjusted based on the AMI instance type being used (m1-small, m1-large, m1-xlarge). This feature requires that you use “Wowza Pro DevPay AMI ID v EC2 1.1.9″ or greater. See the Wowza Media Server 2 for Amazon EC2 User’s Guide (below) for more information.
