Dreamworks Animation Utilizes the Red Hat Portfolio to Build a Private Cloud
DreamWorks Animation SKG today prides itself on being on the leading edge of both creative artistry and technology. They wanted to enable rapid, cost-efficient scalability of computing, resources for HPC (High-Performance Compute) workloads, optimal use of a multi-datacenter footprint and enhance the reliability and availability of mission-critical services. They chose Red Hat to overcome these challenges. They implemented Red Hat Enterprise MRG as the grid infrastructure of DreamWorks Animation's 30,000+ core render farm and Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization as the platform to run mission-critical services on Red Hat Enterprise Linux. The benefits of implementing Red Hat Enterprise MRG and Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization were rapid, efficient infrastructure scalability, reduced datacenter footprint and enhanced reliability and availability.
