With the introduction of CloudFuzion at the Siggraph show in Los Angeles earlier this year Axceleon continues its commitment to hide complexity for the artist, brings complete workflow management to the 3D animation ecosystem and allows studios and the enterprise to harness developments in cloud computing, realize savings on their infrastructure and increase productivity", "On Demand" rendering/computing capacity is a key part of "seamless rendering" and the evolved render farm and is a major deliverable of CloudFuzion, commented Mr. Duffy.

"Axceleon has been invited to to participate on the IBM booth for the event this year in Singapore and we are pleased to be part of their Siggraph Asia presence. Asia is an important market for Axceleon and we have added 20 new customers over the last few months in Japan, China, Korea and Singapore. The theme of Siggraph Asia is extending the horizons of innovation and excellence and this is certainly what IBM continues to bring to the global marketplace. By combining Axceleon products with IBM's hardware and middleware solutions the artist can continue to create and stimulate their intellect and imagination and explore ideas in innovative ways without having to worry about their working environment" said Mr. Duffy.
