Minivegas was looking for flexible rendering capacity to allow visitors to quickly create a personalized animated video. The solution had to be flexible enough to support large groups of visitors simultaneously, without affecting rendering speed and user experience. Within a short time a real-time online video-rendering solution in the cloud was developed. This high-performance environment is based on a physical infrastructure using VMware vSphere and vCloud products. The integration and control of the vCloud environment from the render infrastructure takes place via prefab vApps and VMware PowerCLI and the vCloud API. Due to the choice of a cloud storage environment, videos are prepared and presented in an average of 40 seconds. Furthermore, extra rendering capacity can be automatically scaled up or down.
