Hey guys, just wondering is it a good idea to cloud media file servers? Main function of the server would just be hosting static media files (videos, images, etc.) and let people download them direct. Nothing fancy, nothing dynamic.
Does seems like using cloud for this is more expensive, because really what's really going to be used is the bandwidth (and bandwidth on cloud is expensive). Probably need decent HD speed, not a lot of CPU. Since download will be 24/7, hourly billing isn't really an advantage.
What do you guys think?
