SIMPLE ANIMATION is a global cloud-based platform for digital content management and creation focused on animation and VFX studios. Simple Animation provides a virtual desks solution with graphic capacity in the cloud, allowing users to be connected to a virtual desk from anywhere through any equipment keeping its own configuration and software without upgrades and with a minimum investment.
Who it is for?
It is aimed at any professional, both freelancers, as well as small, medium and large companies, who seek to flex and optimize their IT infrastructure, taking advantage of all the advantages of the cloud in a simple and affordable way.
WHERE CAN IT BE USED?
Anywhere in the world, leveraging the infrastructure provided by our partner IBM CLOUD SERVICES with 60 data centers around the world. We currently provide services from Dallas(USA), giving coverage to United States, Canada, and Mexico; from Frankfurt (Germany) for all Europe and from Tokyo (Japan) for Japan, South Korea and Taiwan.
Each data center in the IBM’s cloud has capacity to host thousands of servers. The space, electric power, network, stuff and infrastructure are optimized in every locations. The bandwidth and low latency of the network that interconnects the servers within the same location and among different locations, allow high availability and replication of data as well as optimal performance of the entire system. Built with hardware and tools from market leaders, equipped with various power supplies, fiber links, dedicated generators and backup batteries. The redundant energy and cooling resources are inspected regularly to ensure stability. All locations are protected and the access to server rooms is limited to certified staff. The external auditors verify the controls and detailed reports are provided for their safety.
Simple uses Horizon 7, the leading virtualization platform for workstations and applications of VMware. This technology provides our users access to virtual desks, applications and on-line services keeping an optimal user experience, taking advantage the GPU virtualization of NVIDIA that allows cloud-based workstations with 3D capacities similar to those of on-site workstations.
This technology allows Simple to improve the collaborative workflow and cut down costs, allowing distributed teams to collaborate in graphic projects at real time on the cloud, increasing the security of critical data as well as protecting intellectual property as stored data is centralized.
VIRTUAL HIGH-PERFORMANCE WORKSTATIONS ACCELERATED WITH NVIDIA® VIRTUAL GPU
Simple uses the virtual GPU (vGPU) technology of NVIDIA that redefines visual computing by giving designers, engineers, scientists, and graphic artists the power to take on the biggest visualization challenges with immersive, interactive, photorealistic environments. Leveraging NVIDIA Tesla GPUs, NVIDIA GRID™ delivers virtual workstations from the data center or cloud. Architects, engineers, and designers are now released from their desk and can access their applications and data from anywhere.
The NVIDIA graphic cards of Simple work with the Quadro® Virtual Data Center Workstation technology powering virtual desks with GPU acceleration, keeping the user experience of Quadro® and allowing to run complex simulations at real time, accelerating the rendering of photorealistic images. All this, in addition, maintaining the certified compatibility with the market leading applications.
SIMPLE ELIMINATES COMPLEXITY OF CLOUD VIRTUALIZATION SYSTEMS
The management layer developed by Simple, allows to configure all infrastructure required on the cloud, simplifying complex systems for provisioning public clouds while maintaining all their availability and granularity. All from an attractive web interface. The capacity of inviting a new user to a project on the fly, configure the storage as project needs, optimize the power of the workstations per each user type or task that is carried out at each moment, are just some examples that make Simple a unique service in the market.
