Qumulo Unveils Post Production Platform in the Cloud with Studio Q on AWS
Qumulo, the breakthrough leader in radically simplifying enterprise file data management across hybrid cloud environments, announced its new Studio Q Quick Start offering, a comprehensive post production platform that enables creative teams to replicate the collaborative editorial production process in the cloud. With a simple AWS CloudFormation deployment, studios, broadcasters and corporate video production teams can now run Adobe Premiere Pro and Adobe After Effects on Amazon Web Services, Inc. (AWS), unblocking content creation workflows, previously suboptimal or impossible with other file systems.
Qumulo Studio Q combines the power of the Qumulo File Data Platform with Teradici CAS PCoIP technology to enable a unique virtual desktop per editor, allowing simple and easy collaboration with a rich and lossless user experience across shared media assets without disruption. With the Studio Q Quick Start, enterprises with high-performance mezzanine editorial workflows can now rapidly deploy a complete studio in the cloud for collaborative, remote editorial teams.
“Qumulo on AWS gives us the performance gains needed over object stores and the ability to use our highly active file data at any scale in the cloud,” said Graham Peddie, COO from Cinesite. “Qumulo, with its capacity-based consumption options, allows our Line of Business and IT teams to work together on our digital projects without compromising on choice of how we manage our unstructured data or control costs.”
As production studios, corporate video editors and broadcasters shift their creative workflows to a remote environment, Studio Q accelerates the transition to the cloud by making it radically simple. Customers can now leverage the Studio Q Quick Start to select pre-configured Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2) instances, quickly spinning up the entire Studio Q environment on AWS, reducing hundreds of manual procedures to just a few steps, and allowing video editors and artists to get up and running immediately. Teradici CAS provides the flexibility to work from anywhere, enabling simple and secure access to Studio Q with an outstanding user experience.

“The increasing demands for video production paired with today’s shift to remote work have left creative teams within the media and entertainment industry with more data challenges than they ever thought imaginable,” said Ben Gitenstein, Vice President of Product at Qumulo. “Studio Q is a cloud solution that allows global teams to run Adobe Premiere Pro on AWS with the same performance of an on-premises workstation.”
To provide an easy pathway to cloud, two platform service options are available via the AWS Quick Start landing page. Customers can choose Studio Q’s self-service model through their own AWS account or undergo a guided sales experience to test editorial workstations. The testing and developing route will support customers that are moving current workstations to the cloud. Customers looking to engage in a guided sales experience to test their specific use case may be eligible for AWS credits as part of the testing.
