Introducing Amazon Nimble Studio (2:12)


Accelerate your cloud transition

Get your content production pipeline up and running in hours instead of weeks. Nimble Studio's automation and pre-built Amazon Machine Images (AMIs) make it easy to set up your virtual workstations, storage, and render farm, all with an artist-friendly user interface (UI).

Scale with project demand

Nimble Studio automatically configures AWS services, scaling your studio to suit business needs across single or multiple locations. Add more artists to graphics-intensive projects with virtual workstations, utilize high-speed storage with Amazon FSx, and orchestrate compute resources on an integrated cloud-based render farm using EC2 Spot Instances.

Access the global talent you need

Onboard remote artists in minutes. Utilize the latest software and hardware technology, to provide the best possible performance for your artists and studio. With availability in major content creation markets, you can look for and hire the best talent.

Simplified workstation pricing

Setting up virtual streaming workstations involves multiple cost considerations. Nimble Studio offers a simplified pricing structure including the instance, Elastic Block Store (EBS), and egress charges to take the guesswork out of the total cost of ownership (TCO).

Seamless collaboration

The Nimble Studio portal simplifies granting user permissions, sharing project data, and adding new team members. Using the NICE DCV remote display protocol, stream pixels instead of data to keep your project data in the cloud and to streamline artist collaboration.

Build with the highest standard for data security

Build on the most secure global infrastructure, knowing you always own your data, including the ability to encrypt it, move it, and manage retention. AWS automatically encrypts all data flowing across the AWS global network at the physical layer before it leaves our secured facilities.
