The acquisition allows CoreWeave to expand its suite of solutions and capabilities for animation studios to easily integrate workloads into the cloud. With the merger, CoreWeave will have 95 employees.

The combined companies said they could eliminate friction in the customisation process for customers. Maintaining existing functionality, CT customers will also be able to use the solutions, including access to a wide range of Nvidia GPUs.

The demand for GPU cloud resources for rendering and animation projects has exploded, while persistent supply chain issues make access to computing difficult. We offer dedicated resources that our customers rely on at scale, empowering studios and artists to render fast and efficiently.

Mac Moore, CEO of Conductor Technologies

CoreWeave is already helping to modernise VFX and rendering workflows as one of its core offerings, providing flexible on-demand artist workstations, virtually unlimited rendering capacity and network storage.

Customers can use NVIDIA GPUs and processors that are highly optimised for rendering, on-demand and at scale. Modular solutions throughout the pipeline offer flexibility, scalability and an intuitive path to migration.
