Ion

orchestration system for software environments

BUILD PRODUCTION AND OPERATIONAL ENVIRONMENTS

ion is a tool to build MPC’s production and operational environments. Our software is not run solely on an artist’s workstation, but across the render farm; within our micro-services framework; in the cloud; on set or maybe in the middle of a field.

MANAGE DEPENDENCIES AND REQUIREMENTS

Managing software within a technology driven vfx studio like MPC can be complicated; our stack must be provided alongside numerous third party applications (Maya, Nuke, Houdini, etc) each with their own particular set of dependencies and requirements.

CONSTRUCT ISOLATED CONTAINERS

ion allows MPC to describe our production environments and construct isolated containers which can run our software stack wherever it is needed. It is an orchestration system for software build – focusing on dependency management and provision of parallel runtime environments, whilst integrating into our established software and environment management tools.
