So we don’t manage a museum website but we do manage 1000’s of audio and
video clips at My Tours. We use Amazon s3
<> for storage (Backed up to Backblaze B2
<>) and Amazon Elastic
Transcoder <> for
converting the source content into different formats (streaming, HD and SD
download, etc.).

We also use Amazon CloudFront <>
as the CDN to serve it all up. You can hook it all up so that as soon as
you drop the source file into S3 the ElasticTranscoder does its thing so
not a lot of set up required.
