There’s no stopping Bristol-based virtual supercomputer startup, YellowDog. The company has been nominated for not just one, but two awards at the prestigious Tech Trailblazers awards – designed to recognise enterprising technology startups from around the world.

Shortlisted in the Cloud and Firestarter Trailblazer awards, YellowDog – who were selected due to their innovative platform that harnesses and monetises under-utilised computer power for fast CGI and animation rendering services – needs your votes to secure a well-deserved win.

“We’re calling out to everyone that knows YellowDog to take a couple of seconds and vote for us”

 

YellowDog’s Founder, Gareth Williams (pictured right), tells us: “We’re thrilled our innovative solutions have been recognised and shortlisted in the global awards and, alongside many inspiring leaders in the industry. But we want to win so we’re calling out to everyone that knows YellowDog to take a couple of seconds and vote for us so we can bring the trophies home. We wish everyone luck and may the best dog win!”

Trailblazing

The Cloud Trailblazer award goes to tech wizards finding innovative solutions using the cloud and is only open to companies that are less than 6 years old. YellowDog uses cloud-sourced computer power and re-packages it into render services.  This enables CGI, VR and 3D animators to deliver computer renders faster than ever before, with the ability to spin up to 168,000 cores – enough to help with the biggest and most complex jobs.

The Firestarter Trailblazer award recognises enterprises younger than 2 years old that are showing huge potential in the tech world and who are still securing funding from VCs.

YellowDog has seen huge growth since it launched in 2015, recently announcing that it now has over 500 customers around the globe in just 12 months, having raised £1.2 million in its last funding round.

25% extra credit

High flying on huge amounts of success also means that this month YellowDog has been offering 25% extra credit to subscriptions purchased with their speedy render service – with the additional credit being valid both for current projects or kept for rendering jobs later in the year.

“Our render service is revolutionary and we want to offer everyone access to high quality, superfast renders”

 

Fortunately there’s still time, but you’ve got to be quick, the offer is only running until midnight on 31 January.

Gareth adds: “Our render service is revolutionary and we want to offer everyone access to high quality, superfast renders at a great price, so animators and artists really can get value for money and at a fixed price.

“We hope this offer supports those tight budgets and additional projects that many animators have.  It’s also our way of saying thanks to those clients who have worked with us thus far.”
