AWS Elemental MediaStore Features

AWS Elemental MediaStore is a video origination and storage service. It offers the performance and consistency required for delivering streaming media combined with the security and durability AWS offers across its services. The service can be accessed through the AWS Management Console, or via APIs or AWS SDKs and configured to your workflow.

Key features

Performance when you need it

Low, predictable latencies for any sized audience
When you create or update a video file in AWS Elemental MediaStore, it is automatically held in a replicated cache for the first few minutes. This gives predictable latency and great performance, regardless of how many viewers watch your stream.

Consistent, low latency reads, writes, and updates

Reduce buffering and end-to-end latency
Consistent read-after-write, and read-after-update performance is required for HTTP-based streaming video protocols that use manifests to tell a player what objects to download. If the content is not available immediately when requested, buffering or playback failures will occur, and if content manifests aren’t current, devices will simply stop playback. AWS Elemental MediaStore is built for low-latency reads and writes, and high volumes of requests, which allows you to deliver consistent quality-of-service to viewers.

Access Control Management

Control access to your video content
Integrated security management tools let you create Identity and Access Management (IAM) roles, improving security and restricting access to content to specific roles. As an example, you can restrict access to entire storage containers, or just particular content paths, exposing only the content required to CDNs and end viewers. Regardless of your workload, AWS security management tools give you the control, whether its managing content read access, or delegating write access to a particular set of users.

Use Independently or with AWS Media Services

Use with other AWS Media Services, or deploy on its own
As one of the AWS Media Services, you can choose to use AWS Elemental MediaStore as a standalone service or integrate it with AWS services for live video encoding, VOD processing, ad personalization and monetization, or media-optimized storage. Additionally, other AWS services, such as the Amazon CloudFront CDN, offer seamless interoperability with AWS Elemental MediaPackage.
