EnFuzion Optimizes Image Rendering on Amazon EC2

EnFuzion3D 2009 Enables Resizeable Image Rendering in the Amazon Cloud


Sunnyvale, California. (July 13th, 2009) - Axceleon, a leader in high performance distributed computing solutions for render farms and clusters today announced that EnFuzion is the first commercial product on the market today to enable seamless rendering with major 3D applications in the Amazon EC2 Cloud.

EnFuzion3D 2009 interfaces, launches and manages image renders in the Amazon EC2 supporting major 3D applications such as Autodesk Maya, Autodesk 3ds Max, Adobe After Effects with plug-in renderers like vRay - Chaos Group, 3Delight - DNA Research, Turtle - Illuminate Labs including mental ray from mental images.

"EnFuzion with EC2 provides 'elastic rendering' within the cloud and changes the economics of rendering by allowing studios and end users to pay only for their usage. This notion of 'elastic rendering' using EnFuzion decreases the management of the hardware and software stockpile in a studio environment. The EnFuzion render farm in the cloud can shrink and expand on demand. It can start with one render node and then rapidly expand to thousands of render nodes transparently increasing the potential of the render farm within minutes using Amazon's EC2", said Mr. Duffy, President and CEO of Axceleon.

"The Amazon EC2 is perfect for distributed image rendering as well as other computational intensive activities. EnFuzion manages all such compute intensive data parallel activities with ease, flexibility and total control. We are very excited at how well EnFuzion performs in the Amazon EC2", commented Mr. Duffy.
