When using AWS Elemental MediaStore as your live streaming origin, you can now configure a Transient Data Policy on your container via the Object Lifecycle Policy API, which will remove an HLS manifest if it has not been recently updated. This enables players to automatically switch from a primary origin to a backup origin with no additional coding or setup. Customers with redundant encoding pipelines previously had to perform complicated configuration downstream of the origin to ensure manifest freshness. With Transient Data Policy, customers can leverage native HLS behavior to perform origin switch-over.

AWS Elemental MediaStore is a video origination and storage service that offers the high performance, predictable low latency, and immediate consistency required for live streaming media combined with the security and durability AWS offers across its services. MediaStore offers an inexpensive method for pass-through and low-latency segmented video content delivery, with pay-as-you-go pricing.

The service functions independently or as part of AWS Elemental Media Services, a family of services that form the foundation of cloud-based video workflows and offer you the capabilities you need to transport, create, package, and deliver video.
