t from creation to consumption. On June 16th, we had the pleasure of joining our partners AWS Thinkbox, Qumulo and Teradici at this year’s Symposium to showcase h

ow studios can produce and deliver better content in less time using virtual workstations and render farms in AWS.

Many of the major studios with large budgets to support their own dedicated in-house teams are experiencing success for the content production pipeline in AWS. Thanks to collaborative efforts from partners in the ecosystem including AWS Thinkbox, Teradici, Qumulo and Six Nines to accelerate the journey, the market has now evolved to the point where smaller studios can also benefit from the speed, flexibility and power that’s only available in the cloud.  

 

Getting a Jump Start in AWS

Six Nines' Media & Entertainment solutions help studios, producers, editors, animators, game designers and visual effects artists access the power of AWS. Designed to make getting started fast, simple and as painless as possible, our quick start solutions for visual effects and media & entertainment create a fully-functioning, operationally sound and well-managed AWS environment to run as many virtual workstations and render farms as a studio needs.
