The network of data centers within walking distance of 3data and Huawei provided computing power for the production of visual effects for the domestic film "T-34". The resources provided allowed us to seriously accelerate the production of graphics on the project and save a lot of time for both of ALGOUS Studio artists and other members of the post-production team of this film.
Data centers of 3data company can boast of capacious data storage systems, which can aggregate the most diverse media content: from 3D models to scanned illustrations. At the same time, the transfer of media content, thanks to the company «Mastertel», acting as a telecommunications partner of the network of club data centers 3data, is fast and reliable - through secure digital channels of fiber-optic lines of the network «Master-Connect».
Dozens of highly professional artists work on films in ALGOUS Studio, thanks to which almost every blockbuster becomes a hit. Every frame of a movie that requires computer graphics is processed using a variety of servers and workstations equipped with professional video cards. Taking into account the fact that in cinemas and on television, films with an average duration of 90 minutes are broadcast at a frequency of 24 frames per second, VFX artists have to process an average of 30-40 thousand frames. To create a single picture requires more than 300 servers, including powerful graphics accelerators, more than 600 thousand hours of rendering, about 5 thousand physical cores used simultaneously, as well as more than 100 terabytes of disk space.
All the material that forms the basis of the next film, after the installation is archived for long-term storage on the storage. Movies are rendered simultaneously on a large number of powerful virtual machines of Huawei 3data Cloud, configurations with professional video cards are available. Intermediate content is quickly backed up to cloud storage for rapid disaster recovery in the event of an emergency.
