Fabric Engine's Creation Platform

The crew at Fabric Engine built the new open-source Creation Platform—a framework for building custom, high-performance graphics applications—because they found off-the-shelf DCC applications not flexible enough for studios' needs. By providing the major building blocks for tool creation, says Fabric Engine, Creation Platform allows developers to spend less time building back-end architectures and more time building critical workflows and high-performance functionality into their tools. Fabric Engine took this approach in response to the rise of performance-hungry applications like simulation and virtual production. Because existing solutions are not keeping pace, says the company, studios have had little choice until now but to build from scratch to fulfill their creative requirements—something that is outside their core business. Key features of the Creation Platform include the Fabric Core Execution Engine for exceptional performance out of both CPUs and GPUs, modularity, extensibility and accessibility. Most Creation applications are built using Python and Qt.

As Linux grows in importance in terms of value to the business, managing Linux environments to high standards of service quality — availability, security, and performance — becomes an essential requirement for business success.

White Paper
Private PaaS for the Agile Enterprise

If you already use virtualized infrastructure, you are well on your way to leveraging the power of the cloud. Virtualization offers the promise of limitless resources, but how do you manage that scalability when your DevOps team doesn’t scale? In today’s hypercompetitive markets, fast results can make a difference between leading the pack vs. obsolescence. Organizations need more benefits from cloud computing than just raw resources. They need agility, flexibility, convenience, ROI, and control.

Stackato private Platform-as-a-Service technology from ActiveState extends your private cloud infrastructure by creating a private PaaS to provide on-demand availability, flexibility, control, and ultimately, faster time-to-market for your enterprise.
