CloudStudio moves projects that are traditionally hardware-bound in a physical production site to the public cloud on both the AWS and GCP platforms.

Key Benefits

Allow artists to connect from anywhere (including their couches), while experiencing seamless 30+ frames per second (FPS) video playback.


Get best-in-class NFS and SMB protocol support, plus full permissions handling and metadata fidelity, in the cloud.


Leverage enterprise-grade file storage at warp speed in the cloud, allowing artists to use their preferred applications, and focus on producing, editing and delivering amazing content.

The problem

Media and entertainment digital content creators are having to adapt their workflows and keep productions on schedule.

Production teams worldwide are leaving their studios and working from home. Organizations urgently need tools and architectures that will enable them to continue running specialized workflows like editing, rendering and post-production effects.

In addition, Post-production organizations are always 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 demanded by modern visual effects workflows.

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 quickly and easily , allowing local artists to use the professional applications they’re used to, while experiencing seamless 30+ frames per second (FPS) video playback. Qumulo CloudStudio gives administrators peace of mind, as all assets are 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 increasingly complex, Qumulo CloudStudio enables studio managers to quickly harness more computing power and capacity in near-real time to tackle complex render workloads on specialized cloud compute instances. It’s easy to spin up thousands of CPU and GPU instances in AWS or GCP, and turn render time into an adjustable variable.

CloudStudio Features

Collaborate in real-time. Connect all your data and apps.

Use the pro apps you already know (and own)

Qumulo CloudStudio works with many software tools used in post-production today – Adobe Premiere Pro, Adobe After Effects, Cinema 4D, 3ds Max, Nuke, Maya, and others.

How do these workhorse applications — all written for Windows and macOS workstations — work so smoothly in the cloud? The reason is Qumulo CloudStudio. Qumulo running in the cloud provides best-in-class NFS and SMB protocol support, automatic cross-protocol permissions handling, and full metadata fidelity. Combined with ultra low-latency remote desktop clients such as those from Teradici, remote artists get the same level of application responsiveness they’re used to, because applications get the same enterprise-grade file storage they need to run properly.

All of this runs harmoniously together, at large scale and warp speed in the cloud.

Some of the world’s largest movie studios, streaming content providers, and gaming companies are using Qumulo in the public cloud to run their customized pre and post-production workflows at scale.
