Industrial Brothers– a full-service animation studio that creates and produces its own children’s content– thrives on a collaborative model with its artists working together in close physical proximity. When the studio needed to implement remote working for its team members due to the pandemic, Qumulo stepped in to recreate the studio experience and deep collaboration with production in the cloud. Within days, Qumulo’s file data platform replicated Industrial Brothers’ creative workflows on the AWS cloud, enabling the artists to keep production timelines on track.
In today’s OTT video streaming universe, the number of service contenders has risen dramatically with the latest entrants like Disney+ and NBC Universal’s Peacock service. With so much choice, competition for eyeballs is higher than ever.
