Disappointing

It's disappointing that Wowza's AMI doesn't support high-throughput networking via Elastic Networking Adapter. From Amazon's documentation on ENA: "Enhanced networking provides higher bandwidth, higher packet-per-second (PPS) performance, and consistently lower inter-instance latencies."

This adapter is available on lots of EC2 instance types, including the new M5 generation, providing 10 Mbit performance. Comparing M4.large to M5.large, the M5 is cheaper, and *way* better network performance: 0.47 Gbit/s on M4.large and 10.04 Gbit/s on M5.large.

Alas, I can't use Wowza's AMI to take advantage of this massive upgrade in performance.

Come on Wowza. Latency matters in streaming!
