Amazon Web Services provides a set of secure and on-demand storage, archive, computing, transcoding, streaming, and application services for media companies.
"I can’t imagine having been able to do very many of the things that we’ve done without the benefit of a platform like this."
- Jon Brendsel, PBS
"In the past when we had critical encoding tasks in front of us we would sometimes spin up many thousands of servers, and complete the task within a matter of hours or a few days, and then spin it down when we no longer needed it."
- Yuri Izrailevsky, VP of Cloud and Platform Engineering
"The five-year total cost of ownership (TCO) of developing, deploying, and managing critical applications in Amazon cloud infrastructure represents a 72% savings compared with deploying the same resources on-premise or in hosted environments."
With Amazon EC2 you can deploy 1000s of machines, configure them with the encoding software you choose, encode your entire library, and shut the cluster down when you’re done.
With Amazon Glacier you get the same 11 9s data durability as Amazon S3 and pay as little as .01 per gigabyte per month. With your data in Glacier, you can leverage our other service to quickly distribute older content when it becomes popular.
With Amazon Direct Connect you can bypass the internet and set up 1Gb or 10Gb direct connections from your datacenters to the AWS Cloud. We also have technology partners who can transfer large files over the internet at up-to 700Mb/s.
Amazon Web Services provides a set of compute, storage, database, and application services that make it easy to scale and maintain cost-effective internet-based apps that run fast.
