In 2010, Mundoloco CGI Studios began production of a Hollywood-level animated movie. In 2012, it was ready to render more than 276,000 frames of film. But constrained by a limited budget, the studio needed to keep production costs as low as possible. Mundoloco set up 550 Microsoft Azure virtual machines all over the world to speed up the rendering time, enabling it to meet its premiere deadline and stay within its production budget. Not only was the process of setting up the virtual machines fast and easy, but Mundoloco used the increased processing power in Microsoft Azure to reduce the time it took to render the frames by copying the input materials in each virtual machine.
