Eurus Energy, MORGENROT and WOODMAN announce Cloud-based CG Rendering Services using Renewable Clean Energy
- High-performance AMD Radeon(TM) GPUs with Radeon(TM) ProRender Rendering Engine
SAN DIEGO, CA and TOKYO, Aug, 01 2019 - (JCN Newswire) - Eurus Energy America (San Diego), MORGENROT Inc (Tokyo) and WOODMAN Inc (Tokyo) today announced that they will start providing distributed cloud-based CG rendering services to meet increasing demand for high-speed rendering from various industries such as content creation, industrial design, automotive, entertainment, and others.
Eurus Energy America is a subsidiary of Japan's leading renewable energy company, Eurus Energy Holdings (Tokyo), operating large scale wind and solar farms worldwide. Eurus Energy America will build a render farm within a wind farm and begin render services to customers globally in January 2020.
WOODMAN, a blockchain-based consulting firm, MORGENROT, a rendering service company, and AMD will provide Eurus Energy America with technical support. The rendering farm will use high-performance AMD Radeon(TM) GPUs, Ryzen(TM) processors and the AMD Radeon(TM) ProRender (RPR) engine, and utilize renewable power generated by the wind farm operated by Eurus Energy America.
This is the first example of clean, renewable energy used to power efficient, cloud-based rendering services with AMD Radeon ProRender technology.
The render farm key features are:
- AMD Radeon GPU-based rendering server cluster
- Server cluster built in a 20 feet standard shipping mobile data center container
- Equipped with fully-fledged air and temperature control
- Equipped with remote monitoring and supervisory system
- Capacity scaling can be done just adding more units of the container data center
"We are pleased to announce our entry into the render farm business, which is an ideal move for us to optimize our capacity for clean energy generation. We will work closely with MORGENROT, WOODMAN and AMD to further enhance our rendering service capacity," said Satoshi Takahata, President and CEO of Eurus Energy America Corp.
"MORGENROT offers cloud-based distributed rendering service, which is highly efficient and scalable for all creators who are hungry for more computing power as they need it. We are working closely with AMD to deploy AMD's latest technologies as soon as they are available in the market," says Shane Bennett, Director of MORGENROT USA.
"WOODMAN will work very closely with AMD and Eurus to establish a highly efficient cloud-based render farm powered by clean energy supplied by the Eurus wind farm. We feature AMD's Radeon GPUs and Radeon ProRender rendering engine in order to maximize the efficiency and cost performance of our rendering service to all customers who are hungry for more rendering power on-demand. We will start this service in September," said Shinjiro Ono, CEO of WOODMAN.
"This pioneers huge business potential of distributed cloud CG rendering service based on AMD GPUs and Radeon ProRender technology. The combination of renewable clean energy from the Eurus wind farm and AMD's highly efficient Radeon GPUs with 7nm technology is a perfect solution for power-hungry rendering customers worldwide," said Jorg Roskowetz, Head of Blockchain Technology BU, Director Product Management of AMD. We are pleased to establish the first distributed cloud-based render farm supported by clean energy."
