This new Quick Start, built in collaboration with Teradici, deploys a highly available architecture for cloud video editing on the Amazon Web Services (AWS) Cloud in about 30 minutes. Deploying on AWS yields a high-performing environment for transforming videos. Video editing involves large files and requires powerful graphics processing unit (GPU) workstations. Amazon Simple Storage Service (Amazon S3) provides durable, scalable object storage.  

With Teradici’s PC-over-IP (PCoIP) technology, video editors modify content on a remote workstation, avoiding large data transfers to a local machine. An Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2) G3 GPU instance is a robust, low-cost model for graphics-heavy workloads. Remote Desktop Gateway (RD Gateway) gives administrative access to the environment, and AWS Directory Service for Microsoft Active Directory enables AWS resources to use Active Directory.
