Silverdraft Enters into Agreement with DigitalGlue for Distribution of
Supercomputers to the Film Industry in the Southeastern US
LAGUNA NIGUEL, CA – September 22, 2016— Silverdraft Supercomputing, LLC, the pioneer in supercomputing technology developed for media and entertainment, has signed DigitalGlue as its newest reseller. Built to power the most intense workflows, Silverdraft’s Devil and Demon supercomputers deliver unsurpassed performance and results for artists and designers working in rendering, VFX, transcoding, animation, immersive VR, and visualization. The agreement also calls for DigitalGlue to act as the Company’s distributor and systems integrator in the Southeastern US, and for its Atlanta facility to serve as Silverdraft’s demonstration site.
“At Silverdraft, we consider ourselves to have a premium brand, and for that we need industry leading representatives out there working with our solutions,” said Tim Tiscornia, Silverdraft president. “Our business relationships are as much about integrity as they are about technical know-how. From the moment we met Sean Busby and Tim Anderson, the principles of DigitalGlue, we were impressed with the way they conduct their business and the level of commitment they exhibit towards their vendors and their customers. So far, everyone we’ve met at DigitalGlue falls into that same mold; the kind of people we want to do business with. We are confident that DigitalGlue will represent our brand the way we want it presented to our customers.”
The announcement follows the launch of three ground-breaking members of its Devil/Demon family earlier this year, including the Devil GPU Supercomputer – the world’s first compact GPU accelerated supercomputer; the Demon VR – the first VR-optimized ultra-workstation for professional applications; and a Demon configuration optimized for Autodesk Flame®. DigitalGlue will represent all the Company’s products.
“DigitalGlue has earned an outstanding reputation for quality and service by aligning with only best-of-breed solutions,” said Tim Anderson, company CEO. “Silverdraft, the most advanced graphic computational supercomputer in the industry, fits right in with our select group of partners. We are delighted to offer our post-production customers products that will allow them to unleash their inspiration and drive their creativity to new levels with phenomenal results.”
