CloudStudio – End-to-end production in the cloud

Collaborate with artists and productions experts around the world instantly, with 30+ FPS video playback and virtual workstations via Teradici.

The problem: Legacy storage can’t handle the speed of your business

Organizations doing post-production work of any kind are looking for new and innovative ways to leverage a growing global talent pool, meet blistering deadlines, and keep up with the fast pace and complexity associated with modern visual effects workflows. Unfortunately, today’s legacy file storage vendors lack the scalability, performance and feature sets that these workloads require, limiting the options for a cloud-based production solution.

The opportunity: Accelerate production schedules with Qumulo CloudStudio

Qumulo CloudStudio allows organizations to work on projects from anywhere in the world with uncompromising speed, flexibility, and security. Customers can deploy CloudStudio in AWS or GCP in seconds, allowing local artists to connect from the hardware of their choice, while experiencing seamless 30+ frames per second (FPS) video playback. Qumulo CloudStudio gives administrators peace of mind about security, as all assets are securely stored in Qumulo’s distributed file system where data access can be seen, managed, and controlled in real-time.

When production schedules get tight, or animations grow in complexity, Qumulo CloudStudio enables users to render workloads entirely in the cloud. It’s easy to spin up thousands of CPU and GPU instances in AWS or GCP, and turn render time into an adjustable variable.

In this video, Qumulo’s Scott Kovach and storage industry expert George Crump discuss Qumulo’s unique benefits for studios moving digital workloads to the cloud.
