Sony Pictures Imageworks Case Study – OpenCue

Earlier this year, we announced that OpenCue had become an ASWF project. Originally developed in collaboration by Google Cloud and Sony Pictures Imageworks, OpenCue is an evolution of Sony’s internal queuing system, Cue 3, which has been developed and used in production at Sony over the past 15 years to schedule and manage tens of thousands of shots over hundreds of projects (over 150,000 simultaneous cores run so far in a hybrid environment).
This new case study discusses how Sony Pictures Imageworks runs OpenCue on production infrastructure. It illustrates an earlier version of OpenCue prior to open sourcing the project, and is perfect for system admins and other professionals planning to install OpenCue.
