Science&Tech Disney is joining forces with Microsoft By weekster Posted on September 16, 2019 1 min read Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Google+ Walt Disney Studios has entered into a partnership with software giant Microsoft, Variety reports on Friday. The film studio will work in the future in Azure, the Microsoft cloud, in order to make films easier and faster. “There are so many benefits of working in the cloud,” says Jamie Voris, tech boss at Walt Disney Studios. “We can be on set in Australia and then immediately edit it in Burbank, California. Making films is a global process.” The choice for the Microsoft cloud was quickly made for Disney. “For large films, we produce petabytes of data (1000 terrabytes, ed.),” Said Voris. According to him, other providers were less focused on the available storage in the cloud. According to Walt Disney Studios, the first films will be premiered in the cloud in one to one and a half years.
