Cloud Computing and The Movie Industry
There is no denying that Cloud Computing and the movie industry will be big business. CloudTweaks has already delved into Cloud Gaming as well as Cloud TV over the past number of months. We’d like to now focus our attention toward the Cloud Motion Picture Industry.
We have come across a cloud computing provider called Cerelink that provides private clouds for the movie industry. They have already worked out a deal to do a multi-year agreement to use on-demand, ‘elastic cloud computing’ to render DreamWorks Animation motion picture projects.
Shrek Forever After and How to Train Your Dragon. are a couple of movies that were rendered using the Cerelink cloud service over the past year. One of the major benefits for the movie industry are the cost savings involved with use of Cloud providers such as Cerelink.
What can we expect?
James Ellington, CEO at Cerelink, says,
“We forecast growing our technical capacity by 20 times by the end 2011 – this will create one of the largest cloud computing arrays for motion picture production in the world.”
