Game Development

Empower your artists, producers and developers to easily leverage the latest cloud technologies to develop games with Studio in the Cloud.

STUDIO IN THE CLOUD

Studio in the CloudStudio in the Cloud is a cloud-native solution for gaming studios that enables teams to move all or part of their game production to the cloud. It offers an all-in-cloud or hybrid cloud infrastructure that allows developers and creatives alike to work, store, build, and render without the need for physical servers and high-end workstations.

By automating cloud workstations, making them available with 4k display and high color depth and frame rates, running demanding creative applications, storing and enabling collaboration with your code and creative assets, and building your final game, our Studio in the Cloud solution provides game studios a platform to easily leverage the power of the cloud.
