If you are planning to host an online education platform, offering classroom based or one-to-one digital tutoring, you definitely need to think about maintaining video recordings and give serious thinking on allocating storage budgets.
Here’s a quick calculation of how much average data a small-scale education portal needs to store:
While using web-based video services like Zoom, their streaming services are definitely unmatched, their storage service can get little tricky.
5.4 TB of data storage in default cloud integration from these video-streaming apps can cost in the range of $10,000-$15,000 yearly.
There are other cost-effective storage services where these recordings can be uploaded and maintained.
|Cloud Storage Service||Yearly cost for 5.4TB (approx)|
|DigitalOcean Spaces Object Storage||$1,300|
|Google Cloud Storage||$1,500|
|Microsoft Azure Cloud Storage||$1,600|
|AWS Simple Storage Service||$1,800|
All these cloud storage services provide API-based integration, which can be directly hooked with your education platform or with your video-streaming service.
