StratusCore Announces Ability to Manage Customers’ Owned Content Creation and Rendering Software Licenses via its Secure Licensing Management System

SEATTLE  |  29 Sep 2017

StratusCore is pleased to announce its ability to now manage customers' existing or new content creation and rendering software licenses, allowing them the freedom to access and use their quiver of content creation tools and plug-ins via a single dashboard. Through StratusCore, customers will be able to either purchase and use of a growing list of licenses directly from the StratusCore platform, or they can submit their existing or new licenses securely for seamless access through their Virtual Workstation and cloud rendering service.

"In an era when artists want to be liberated by choice in how they create content, StratusCore strives to provide them with more options, not less," said Denise Muyco, co-founder and CEO of StratusCore. "We consider ourselves a marketplace and are tool agnostic. We are working closely with a variety of tools vendors to make their offering available on the cloud for their customers, freeing customers to work where, when and how they want."

StratusCore supports over 200 rendering software tools and plug-ins today. Enabling customers to bring their own license to the fold means that artists can easily consolidate their various tools in one place while leveraging the power and economies of cloud rendering.

StratusCore's Virtual Workstation liberates artists from buying and maintaining expensive hardware, enabling them to create and collaborate latency free at 60 frames per second (fps) on a basic laptop and 8Mbps internet connection - from virtually anywhere.

StratusCore's Virtual Workstation, rendering service and production-grade "hot" storage are all tightly connected, eliminating the time, cost and hassle it takes to work with and collaborate on big files. Whether in London, Vancouver, or Hawaii, project members can log in from wherever they choose and access the files and services they need to immediately collaborate on projects. Artists and studios stand to save significantly by securing only the resources they need for the duration needed, eliminating costly upfront hardware and infrastructure investments.

StratusCore's latest version of Virtual Workstation is currently in limited beta and is anticipated to be generally available in 2017.
