Scalar StudioCloud

Scalar StudioCloud is a community cloud designed for the digital media industry. Launched in Vancouver in February 2012, StudioCloud has now expanded to the Toronto market.

Scalar StudioCloud was founded on the recognition that digital media companies have specific and unique IT requirements. The short-term and often unpredictable project workload has traditionally meant that studios have either had to spend time, resources, and money managing redundant infrastructure, or alternatively simply turn certain projects down. StudioCloud solves this problem by offering access to cutting-edge technology on a predictable, per-use cost model.

Currently the primary offering of StudioCloud is servers-on-demand. Studios can access thousands of servers in our data centre, and connect via a secure, dedicated switch. Studios sign up for a contracted minimum number of servers for a 12, 18, or 36 month term. If studios ever find themselves with idle servers, they have the option to sublease them to other studios in the cloud, using our unique exchange feature. Studios connect into the cloud via an ultra-high speed network. Scalar StudioCloud was designed to meet guidelines set out by the Motion Picture Association of America (MPAA), and our facilities are monitored and managed 24/7/365.
