RVX to Deliver Stunning Visual Effects out of Advania Datacenters
Reykjavik, Iceland: RVX, a leading VFX and VR studio, has selected Advania’s Datacenters in Iceland to host their VFX and VR platform.
RVX produces world-class visual effects for film, TV, gaming, and virtual reality projects. Since 2008, they have delivered over 20 projects that have captured global attention, including Hollywood blockbusters such as Gravity, Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy, 2 Guns, Contraband, and Australia, as well as the virtual reality experience Everest VR.
By selecting Advania datacenters to host their VFX and VR platform, RVX has access to Advania’s experienced HPC engineering and support team, while leveraging additional HPC resources as needed through Advania’s new HPC as a Service on-demand, high-performance computing clusters.
Secure and sustainable
With built-in operational redundancy, Advania’s datacenters are also compliant with and certified to highest security standards, and have the advantage of running on 100% sustainable energy, offering very energy-efficient operations (PUE from 1,03).
“We are most likely creating the most environmentally-friendly visual effects in the world,” says Benjamin Bohn, CEO & Managing Director at RVX. “The stability of the hosting environment is what matters to our operations, and after evaluating the options, we decided to go with Advania where the datacenter reliability was certainly one of the big factors, but also the capabilities that we have available if needed from Advania to support our operations.”
Increasing VFX demands call for more compute power
As visual effects become more elaborate and require more computing power in production, RVX has seen a dramatic increase in infrastructure demands.
Upfront investment to meet these growing workloads can be very high. Rather than over-investing in hardware that may not be fully utilized, RVX searched for a solution that can accommodate their base infrastructure needs with the option to access additional resources on-demand when they are needed.
“Advania has built up a highly experienced datacenter team that can deliver world class hosting environment that companies with high demands like RVX can rely on to support their operations as needed,” says Ægir Mar Thorisson, CEO of Advania Iceland. “We are proud of our team that has built up a very strong infrastructure to deliver hosting to the highest standard to serve global needs.”
