Scalability at lower cost through containers
Container technology* has been around for a while now. The benefits are clear: scalability, rapid deployment, cost savings, simplicity. In 2019, 78% of all companies have moved workloads to containers, according to a study by DivvyCloud.
Containerization has now come to the advanced rendering space. In this blog post, we focus on the use cases and advantages of running advanced rendering on Docker.
*Container technology is a method to package an application so it can be run, with its dependencies, isolated from other processes. A container is a package that includes everything to run an application. Containers rely less on external hardware and software and can run on any environment (Microsoft, Linux, Mac etc.)
Why should you investigate running your rendering farm on Docker?
Content transformation is a resource intensive process. Moreover, the workload is highly unpredictable in most cases. And there is typically considerable time pressure.
