Evolphin Cloud Storage Cost Calculator

Explore data migration & on-going ingest costs in the Evolphin Managed AWS Cloud. See how the cost stack up against other cloud providers. Optimize your spend based on your media workloads.

About the Calculator​

This calculator will help you estimate the cost of cloud storage as you look at migrating existing content as well as ongoing ingests for your current projects. Use this calculator to plan how to distribute your assets between the various cloud storage tiers. As described below each tier has its own price versus performance tradeoffs. In other words, the faster the restore time, the greater the cost.

How much data do you expect to ingest to the cloud, after the initial migration, on an ongoing basis? You could look at how much data you produced last year or last month to get an idea. You could also enter the volume based on the average ingest velocity calculated in the previous step.

Evolphin uses intelligent tiering for the cloud tiers below, that means we move your data to the cheaper tier automatically to reduce your cloud storage costs. There is no extra cost to retrieve from the inexpensive Glacier or Deep Glacier archive tiers. Once you restore or download from a cheaper archive tiers, the content gets copied to the faster tier. Your users can then download it using the Evolphin Zoom apps. Please note, these are just the cost estimates for storage, and do not include Evolphin Cloud Services costs.

Play with the percentage of ingested media your team needs for their workloads. Most teams will use newly uploaded media for 1-2 months and then reuse a tiny fraction of it beyond 60 days. We will use this to automatically select the cheapest cloud tiers to estimate your costs. Remember, any media that you download will automatically be copied to the more expensive S3 fast access tier. The defaults below are representative of common workloads we have seen across a wide range of creative teams.

Evolphin Zoom creates proxies from high-res media and caches them on an ultra fast SSD storage tier for rapid streaming or scrubbing through frames in a video. This is the most expensive storage tier. The proxies are typically 2-4% of the original media. You don’t need to keep all your proxies around as Zoom can always show a thumbnail for an asset. Zoom can archive the proxies into a cheaper S3 tier, when needed it can in seconds cache it back on the fastest SSD tier from S3.

Estimated Costs
Based on your selections, we have estimated the annual cost of cloud storage including proxies generated by us. If you received a volume discount from Evolphin Sales, please update it below:
Storage & Egress Needed
We have estimated the amount of cloud storage & Egress bandwidth you will need, in year 1, for storing your media & proxies generated by us as well as data transfer out of the cloud.
We can email a copy of this estimate to you. You can also reach out to Evolphin Sales team for more information.
