Size Matters. Speed Matters. It All Matters.

With CenterGrid’s Virtual Studio, you get better performance for your design ecosystem and more computing power per dollar. This means work gets done faster and without the headaches of distributed workstations and complex data synchronization.

Why? Because no critical equipment “lives” with the user’s team who work virtually, accessing what they need, when they need it – processing and graphics power as well as mega storage – via our resilient, secure data center. Best of all, our skilled professionals will optimize your creative operations and delivery, relieving your creative team of render farm management – and other IT – responsibilities.

Graphics Cloud Power - Any Creator Can Benefit

A 3D artist, a filmmaker, a machine learning developer, a gamer, an architect, a healthcare professional, an automotive manufacturer…

Think of your standard workstation – using cloud technology, you can scale this workstation to meet your project’s needs. Your virtual workstation can run all your software with the same licenses,  but you can change the parameters (such as CPU, GPU, and disc size) whenever you need more processing power.

Is there a lot to do?

All the power you need for your project – at your fingertips.

Is there nothing to do?

Scale your virtual workstations down and pay only a small amount for continuous work.

CenterGrid’s Virtual Studio
Save and Scale at Speed

Save Money

You don’t spend on the state-of-the-art hardware your projects demand, yet your designers and animators still have access to all the power and punch they need.

Scale

You have scalability for producing high-quality projects to maximum resolutions, color depths and file sizes – with expert IT support.

Rendering Farm Access

You have on-demand access to powerful rendering farms for high-quality animations and video post-production.

Save Time

You save valuable computing processing time with high-performance storage as multiple users can access the same project, at the same time, regardless of location – and in real-time. Creative teams don’t need to be on site: they just need an internet connection to access the secure virtual studio platform – from anywhere on the planet.

Security

Your projects are safe. Your workstation data isn’t transferred to your local client, so there is no weak spot where it could be exposed.

Cloud Rendering as a Service

Cloud rendering as a service means flexibility. As projects scale up, you have instant access to greater capacity and, conversely, as projects wind down, and teams contract, you don’t have “dead” capacity. More than that, your timelines shrink: in the cloud, the rendering workload is spread across multiple servers which significantly reduces rendering times. The upshot: creative and production teams can meet tight deadlines and complete projects faster. 

But that’s not all: because you pay as you go and rent rendering resources, you save on infrastructure and maintenance. On top of that, it’s kinder to the planet because your energy consumption drops. So, if you’re looking for a cost-effective solution for production and scalable capacity to deliver high-quality results, cloud rendering as a service is a flexible and efficient solution.

High-Performance Cloud Storage

High-performance cloud storage is becoming a must-have for industries – and creatives – that work with big data and where storage is an increasing limitation. But that’s only part of the story: high-performance cloud storage enables real-time access for remote collaboration because teams can simultaneously access large files and data sets – from anywhere, on any device. At the same time, you reduce downtime because you no longer have file transfer or download issues. With this, you get significantly improved workflow efficiency and productivity because of better coordination and communication. High-performance cloud storage is also scalable. CenterGrid offers high-performance cloud storage with state-of-the-art security including encryption, access control, and backups to protect your IP and prevent data breaches, loss, or unauthorized access.

With our high-performance cloud storage solution, you no longer need to invest in expensive hardware and infrastructure, reducing capital and running costs. In short, utilizing high-performance cloud storage leads to better project outcomes and a positive impact on the bottom line.

Desktop As A Service (DaaS)

The “new normal” means that your production team is often spread all over the city, country, and even the world – a potential hardware, software, storage and security nightmare. Virtual desktops – desktop as a service (DaaS) – or virtual workstation solutions empower your teams to access your production apps from anywhere without expensive hardware.  On top of that, you can scale your team up (or down) and they always have access to server-grade computer power protected by centralized security. DaaS ensures that your team can work remotely and seamlessly collaborate, from anywhere, at any time using IT infrastructure with the highest level of security.

GPU Accelerated Virtual Workstation

If the graphics your talented team needs to produce, cause graphics hardware conflicts, CenterGrid provides powerful virtual workstations that your creative team can access from any device, anywhere. No matter how complex or graphically intensive, our accelerated GPU solution – accessed via our secure data center and cloud – is an effective and affordable solution.

Service Desk

We understand how critical the efficient use of your IT systems is to your day-to-day operations. Our high availability of IT support ensures that your Service Desk will always be there to support your IT systems and applications. Our outsourced Service Desk can handle all your Level 1 issues, freeing up your higher expertise technical staff and costly advanced technical engineers. Which will allow them to focus on more strategic technical projects within your organization.

Dedicated Host Cloud

Performance and security are critical elements that impact the choice of shared or dedicated cloud hosting – especially as an organization’s digital footprint grows. For enterprises that have big data to protect and for designers, creatives and production houses that need to safeguard their IP, dedicated cloud hosting, offers greater control, compliance, and performance than shared hosting. Effectively, teams have full control over their own resources and security settings, all of which are essential for production applications and workflows. CenterGrid’s dedicated cloud service is built with trusted enterprise-class technologies, which means not sacrificing control, compliance, or performance.
