AWS Elemental MediaConvert queues allow you to manage the resources that are available to your account for parallel processing of jobs.
MediaConvert offers two queue types:
- On-demand queues
- Reserved queues
With on-demand queues, you don’t have to set up anything in advance.
- You send your jobs to an on-demand queue whenever you want.
- You pay per minute, billed in increments of .01 minute.
- Your default queue is an on-demand queue.
With reserved queues:
- You pay for the transcoding capacity of the entire queue, regardless of how much or how little you use it.
- You make a 12-month commitment, which AWS bills you for monthly.
