Edge Video tests AWS Lambda for edge content delivery – with 5-10X less bandwidth
Edge Video this week announced that its latest major test demonstrated a 10X cost reduction for livestreaming. The test connected over 1,000 HTML5 video players to the Edge Video network and cut bandwidth by 135.6GB down to just 400MB. The test feed was Sky News live via YouTube.
Based on Edge Video’s pricing of $.008 per GB streamed, that’s a 10X cost reduction for AWS or Azure customers or 15X for Google Cloud customers.
