CoreWeave, a specialised cloud provider built for large-scale GPU-accelerated workloads has qcuired the developer of the Conductor cloud-based task management service.
According to CoreWeave, the acquisition will enable it to deliver burst rendering solutions to visual effects studios while “removing friction” in the setup process.
Conductor customers will also be able to leverage CoreWeave’s solutions, including access to its range of NVIDIA GPUs, as well as the ability to burst on-demand, and responsive autoscaling out-of-the-box.
Conductor CEO Mac Moore is now head of the Media and Entertainment division at CoreWeave under the purview of CoreWeave CEO Michael Intrator. Financial details of the acquisition have not been revealed.
“Demand for cloud-based GPU resources to render VFX and animation projects has skyrocketed, while persistent supply chain challenges have hampered access to compute,” said Moore. “CoreWeave offers the specialised resources that our customers rely on at scale, expanding options for studios and artists to render work quickly and efficiently.
“Until now, we’ve focused our development on easing pain points specifically in content production with the artist in mind and are excited to extend Conductor’s functionality to also benefit CoreWeave customers across high performance compute workloads, including AI and ML.”
