The Problem

When you scope and deliver great projects, you have very happy customers which usually leads to even more project requests. GLProUK are a growing business look to expand and scale but as with a lot of small organisations, that can often be a painful experience.

In their case, more design and animation projects were being won which really stretched their internal resource, loss of productivity and time from designers having to be inactive whilst there awesome projects were rendering on internal machines just wasn’t feasible. It wasn’t cost effective once they took a granular look at the operational cost per hour of

The Solution

I was selling stuff probably since I could remember, like 6 or 7 years old. I was always out there helping my mom and dad sell watches, glasses, CDs, DVDs, stuff like that. Whatever we could put our hands on. I did it until I was around 17. But I was just doing it because I had to. There was no other option. Blow the dust off the clock. Your watches are behind the times. Throw open the heavy curtains which are so dear to you - you do not even suspect that the day has already dawned outside.

When we are fearful and worried all the time, we are living as if we don't believe that we have a strong and able Shepherd who is tenderhearted toward us, who only leads us to good places, who protects us and lovingly watches over us.

The Results

The team wanted to look at an outsourced model and move to an Opex subscription agreement where they could be free to render what they need in a flexible manner but have the piece of mind that their work, once outsourced would be completed both quicker and cheaper than their current setup. They looked at a number of alternatives like YellowDog and Rebus who arguably have a more mature service as they have been around for longer but they decided against the traditional render farm model and really bought into the community and decentralised aspect of Cumulus Render. Security was a key concern especially as they have a lot of contracts that are under NDA and with out technology partnership with global tier 1 security vendor Trend Micro and our teams expertise in the enterprise technology arena, Cumulus Render was the preferred option
