Customer Use Case: How a Virtual Reality Studio Uses Helix Core + AWS

A virtual reality studio needed to be able to collaborate quickly with teams spread around the world (including with other studios). Even though their team has technical expertise, they have no IT department or servers in their office — and wanted to keep it that way. So, they decided to use Helix Core and AWS.

With AWS, Helix Core can be hosted on a high-performance server in an AWS facility (cloud data center) close to the studio. Their team utilized the Best Practices for Deploying Helix Core on AWS guide to architect an optimal configuration of AWS-resident servers, networking, storage, and security.

This configuration included automation of backup and disaster recovery processes. Helix Core’s advanced replication technology — coupled with AWS services — makes it easy to spin up additional servers in the AWS cloud when needed. This makes it easy to serve demanding projects with large assets on tight deadlines.

It also makes it easy for the studio to serve the needs of contractors and partners collaborating on projects. Whether they are across the country or in another part of the world, it’s like everyone is working in the same room.
