Introducing a More Powerful Shotgun for Facilities Around the World

Apr 20, 2017



We're excited to announce an improved experience for clients around the world with new, multiregion hosting. Our clients span the globe, and one thing that they all share in common is the need to access and retrieve media fast, from anywhere. The daily volume and size of media is only growing, and we know that in time-critical business like post-production, speed is everything.

This year, we set out to address the challenge of making Shotgun faster for everyone, regardless of location. As a first step towards this goal, we are now offering storage options outside of North America, bringing media closer to home and helping to mitigate possible delays when media is hosted in another region. You can now enjoy the same fast speed and performance with hosted files whether you're based in Europe, Asia, or North America.

Powered by Amazon S3 Transfer Acceleration, new multiregion hosting allows you to choose the S3 region closest to you for storing media. The latest updates also accelerate the transfer of media, page loading when thumbnails are present, and cloud transcoding in supported regions.

We're excited about this update and hope you are too. Have questions? Feel free to reach out to us at
