Cost trap. Very dangerous product

  • June 03, 2021

We no longer have any instance of this product and without reluctance I continue to receive invoices.

This is a nightmare.

The online information on this situation is very deficient if not non-existent.

It does not make us trust the AWS Markewtplace ( AND WOWZA ) at all for future projects.

Cost makes no sense and the AMI is lagging behind severly

You can pay $65/mo per instance and install yourself on another AMI ( I suggest using a G2 instance then docker along with https://hub.docker.com/r/sameersbn/wowza/ ) or pay $92.31-$1,915.2 per month (depending on the instance type) for the exact same software. Of course, I assumed the software costs would be similar (and covered by my AWS credits; why they are not) so I found out the hard way.

Also, the AMI doesn't provide G2 support (GPU/NVENC support) and lags behind the release schedule so there's even more reason to use a standard instance or docker-capable AMI with GPU support and their monthly license. Still, be careful because whey they say "per instance", they don't mean "per machine" and they will bill you multiple times if their system "phones home" more than once for any reason. Found that out the hard way also.
