Amazon EC2 推出 VT1 Instance

看到 Amazon EC2 推出新機種 vt1,專門為影片壓縮而推出的 family type:「New – Amazon EC2 VT1 Instances for Live Multi-stream Video Transcoding」。

主要是透過 Alveo U30 Data Center Accelerator Card 這張卡加速,號稱比 GPU 機器還要省 30% 的費用 (CPU 的話可以到 60%):

These VT1 instances feature Xilinx® Alveo™ U30 media accelerator transcoding cards with accelerated H.264/AVC and H.265/HEVC codecs and provide up to 30% better price per stream compared to the latest GPU-based EC2 instances and up to 60% better price per stream compared to the latest CPU-based EC2 instances.

看規格支援 H.264H.265,不過看起來沒支援 royalty-free 的 VP9AV1...

另外這跟 AWS Elemental MediaConvert 以及 AWS Elemental Live 好像稍微有點打對台?另外專利的費用不知道怎麼算...
