AMPD Ventures Announces Agreement with Hammerspace, Inc. to Enhance AMPD’s Virtual Studio Offering with a High-Performance Global Data Environment
May 5, 2022
Vancouver, British Columbia – AMPD Ventures Inc. (“AMPD” or the “Company”, CSE:AMPD; OTCQB:AMPDF; FRA:2Q0), a next generation digital infrastructure provider, is pleased to announce that it has entered into a Reseller Agreement with Hammerspace, Inc. (“Hammerspace”) as part of an anticipated broad collaborative relationship between the two companies.
Hammerspace is a global leader in connecting global users with their shared content and applications on any existing data center infrastructure or public cloud services. Hammerspace data orchestration is integrated with workflow management tools such as Autodesk Shotgrid to make high-performance local access to global data without making multiple copies of that data a reality.
Thanks to the agreement between AMPD and Hammerspace, AMPD customers will be able to access and migrate data wherever they need it, across regions and even multiple cloud vendors. This will make the adoption of hybrid solutions easier and eliminate the need to abandon recent storage investments as part of a migration to AMPD Virtual Studio.
“Hammerspace and AMPD share the vision that the future of digital content creation should not be bound to a physical location or region, and always having your data in the right place at the right time for team members across multiple sites is key to realizing this,” said Anthony Brown, CEO at AMPD. “We are excited to enter into a formal relationship with Hammerspace through which AMPD customers will benefit from their amazing technology and add Hammerspace to our growing roster of industry-leading partnerships as we continue to develop the High-Performance Edge.”
“AMPD and Hammerspace share a common mission: to empower the next generation of creators,” said David Flynn, Founder and CEO at Hammerspace. “Our new partnership will give artists, engineers and developers the world over the ability to create without being chained to old, regionalized data and compute models.”
It is estimated that the virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) market will reach USD $30B by 2026, up from USD $11B in 2020, representing 17% annual CAGR growth during the forecast period.
