Qumulo, the leading provider of enterprise-proven hybrid cloud file storage and data services, today announced that it is working with Adobe to help media and entertainment organizations leverage collaborative workflows in the cloud. Cloud-based workflows have become an urgent priority with creative professionals who are working from home and accessing files from remote locations. Adobe® Premiere® Pro and After Effects®, in tandem with Qumulo’s file services, enable collaborative teams to create and edit video footage using cloud storage with the same levels of performance, access and functionality as workstations in the studio.
“Premiere Pro and After Effects are industry-leading applications and give creative professionals the tools they need for better storytelling,” said Sue Skidmore, head of partner relations for Adobe Video. “Qumulo’s hybrid file software gives content creators the performance, scale, and analytics they need to collaborate efficiently in the face of tight deadlines, even from remote locations.”
Premiere Pro is often used together with After Effects on creative projects for film, TV, and web content, providing a tightly integrated post-production workflow. Demanding workflows require high-performance hybrid file storage that can support real-time data sharing and collaboration across on-prem and in the cloud.
“Qumulo’s file data software and cloud services enable media and entertainment organizations to effortlessly connect applications with the data those apps need without disruption of production schedules or need to re-architect any apps. This means fast and seamless collaboration, smooth playback and real-time editing of video footage, even when multiple editors are working with multiple streams of video,” said Barry Russell, senior vice president and general manager of cloud at Qumulo.

“Media organizations can use Qumulo’s software to easily spin up production workloads, using either Amazon Web Services (AWS), or Google Cloud, to create a studio in the cloud, on demand, with all the capabilities of Premiere Pro and After Effects,” added Russell. “Adobe’s Digital Experience team continues to lead the market in innovation and services, as exemplified by the recent unveiling of its new Productions feature set for Premiere Pro. We are gratified to work with Adobe and to serve our customers with the best tools to achieve business success.”
