No HLS. Bandwidth from S3 directly, or from CloudFront region 1 (about the same). 3 storage copies (production, backup, staging)

AWS using MediaConvert to create HLS
29
All the original storage of S3, with ingest costst o create the HLS, and storage costs to store them. While bandwidth *could* be less due to more efficient HLS, we'll estimate at the same.
30
Estimated Size of HLS derivatives
135
MB, let's call it double our original size, but we're not totally sure what HLS size(s) we might want.
31
ingest cost$0.0075
/MINUTE of output
"basic" tier and less than 30fps to avoid higher price
32
Number of HLS derivatives2
let's say we only need two for VHS derivs, effects ingest cost

wait, bandwidth will be LOWER if we only serve lower quality HLS....
36
Additional storage $3.11
37
Ingest$9.00
let's say we do TWO derivs for VHS copies, might do more for HD originals.... then 2x minutes.

we'll say same as standard S3 for now, could actually be LESS viewed

AWS Elemental MediaPackage
43
A black box media server; there may be things we don't really understand about it, since we don't know anyone else that uses it, may be hidden gotchas or things we have wrong. We don't totally understand the pricing.

45
Additional storage rate0?None?
46
Additional bandwidth rate$0.05 /GB
normal cloudfront charges PLUS additional packaging rate. How much can depend on your cache hit rate, let's assume ZERO though.

S3 plus MediaPackage packaging rate. non-zero cache could make this lower? Otherwise essentially 50% premium for bandwidth, I thnk?
