Virtual workstations for Liquid


To meet the production schedules of a large client, Liquid is utilising staff from around the world to ensure a 24/7 production pipeline. Due to the strict security of the production workflow, all files are required to be stored at their main office in London.

Our Solution:

For their international animators to maintain acceptable performance while working on files located in London, Aesir architected a solution utilising virtual 3D workstations that were provisioned in Amazon Web Services data centres located in the nearest geographical region to each animator.

End Result:

The artists could log onto the cloud-based workstations via remote desktop and as the virtual system was located close by, the low latency meant good performance while security policies ensured the sensitive files the animators were working on could not be transferred from their secure location in London.
