YellowDog is a Limitless Compute Platform for VFX and Animation rendering that isn’t restricted by one data centre or one cloud provider.
Solving big batch processing problems in Financial Services; YellowDog combines organisations' existing compute with public cloud.
Cloud computing enables rapid innovation and YellowDog is a great example of an organization that is using it to revolutionize its industry.
With YellowDog, we can render on hundreds of multi-thread Oracle bare metal machines, tracking progress along the way and reducing our retake percentage because we have full visibility of render logs, preview frames, and support from the YellowDog team. Suddenly, seemingly impossible deadlines can be met.
With YellowDog, we lock in a reduced rate for their powerful 72 thread CPU machines. We provide a fixed monthly payment and spread it evenly throughout the year – irrespective of our peaks and troughs on the slate. We know exactly how many machines we get, how many hours of rendering we can use, and how powerful every machine is, so we have total clarity on our available compute.
We could send off renders at 9pm and have them downloaded back to us, without any dropped frames, by the following morning.
With a regular cloud provider, you’re responsible when things go wrong. With YellowDog, they take care of it. If you don’t want risk, go with YellowDog.
Blue Zoo's own render farm is maxed out for other needs so using YellowDog’s cloud rendering has been the answer. It has seamlessly integrated with our own in-house provision so our artists don’t know if their shot was being rendered locally in our server room or on YellowDog’s servers in a datacentre thousands of miles away.
As we were faced with incredible time-pressures, upload time became a serious factor. YellowDog laid on customised solutions...[and]...we made the seemingly impossible, possible. We delivered top results and met our deadline.
We pushed 80 nodes overnight and we were able to achieve something impossible in our own render farm.
YellowDog is a very innovative and reliable partner who adopted with an ease our new way of measuring rendering consumption. It is very important for us to deliver to our clients quick, easy and quality solutions and these made YellowDog a perfect choice for our VRscans products.
As a producer, I think that the best thing about YellowDog is the expertise you can tap into if you need it.
YellowDog is now the easiest cloud renderer to use; other cloud services require you to zip up and upload files to a server, whereas it’s just one click with YellowDog.
The results were outstanding, and delivered far easier than a typical render farm would be able to offer.
YellowDog’s brilliant online interface allowed me to log in and monitor my frames as they rendered which gave me peace of mind as I could check the animation quality in almost real time.
The smoothness of the service YellowDog offered was seriously impressive which benefits both us and our clients.
YellowDog’s scalable cloud rendering for GPU just makes sense.
It was reassuring knowing that when we sent our renders over, YellowDog could throw the kitchen sink at it to get it done in time.
