Deploying Simulated Cloud Stream Manager and Autoscaling
If you wish to run the Red5 Pro autoscaling solution on a hosted platform other than AWS or Google, then you can use the Simulated Cloud API.
In order to use the Red5 Pro Stream Manager service you will need the following:
- The latest Red5 Pro Server build
simulated-cloud-controller.jar, from the Red5 Pro Autoscaling Library Extensions section
- An active Red5 Pro license key, Startup Pro level or higher. REGISTER HERE.. Note: clustering and autoscaling are not supported by
- Dedicated Linux instances on which you can deploy Red5 Pro.
You will want to keep a record of the usernames, passwords, IP addresses, and other information generated during the setup process, as you will need the information for Stream Manager configuration and future operations via the API.
You will need a static IP address for the Stream Manager in order to configure your nodes.
If you are going to use WebRTC publishing, then you will also need to register a domain name and procure an SSL Certificate for the Stream Manager.
