EarthOnDrive/WavGen Finishes its R&D surrounding cloud computing (Amazon CS2) and www.scalr com and can offer customers the ability to DD an image to a virtual cloud renderfarm using WavGen Pro software. This allows our customers the ability to increase the amount of rendernodes to 100 or even 1000 in times of a production deadline. This particular render farm solution is a network licensing model where a two week or 1 month set of builds are pre-configured by our IT staff for your needs.
Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2) is a central part of Amazon.coms cloud computing platform, Amazon Web Services (AWS). EC2 allows users to rent virtual computers on which to run their own computer applications. EC2 allows scalable deployment of applications by providing a Web service through which a user can boot an Amazon Machine Image to create a virtual machine, which Amazon calls an "instance", containing any software desired.
A user can create, launch, and terminate server instances as needed, paying by the hour for active servers, hence the term "elastic". EC2 provides users with control over the geographical location of instances that allows for latency optimization and high levels of redundancy. In November 2010, Amazon switched its own retail website to EC2 and AWS.
