Glukoza Production needed a more powerful environment to handle computer animation for a high-definition, full-length film. For Glukoza Production - a leading Russian computer-animation company - typical projects include commercials, music videos, and custom special effects for television. Recently, however, the company embarked upon creating its first feature-length film, which caused company decision makers to reconsider the technology that Glukoza used for rendering, composition, and dynamic calculations. The company upgraded to a Windows - based high-performance computing solution, which its IT team quickly deployed and which has led to up to 25 percent faster rendering. With that increased efficiency, Glukoza will be able to release its movie up to four months sooner and will be U.S.$200,000 more profitable on the project.
