News of another prominent company that is using Red Hat Linux!
GNU/Linux may not have any pro-grade film editing software for the consumer market, but the film studios use Linux in every aspect of film production. Now Red Hat has added another feater in its hat as DreamWorks Animation SKG is using Red Hat Enterprise MRG as the grid infrastructure of DreamWorks Animation’s 30,000+ core render farm. The mega studio is also using Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization as the platform to run mission-critical services on Red Hat Enterprise Linux.
DreamWorks Animation has been a Red Hat customer for more than a decade. The company founded by Steven Spielberg first deployed Red Hat Linux in its mission-critical render farm. It adopted Red Hat Linux as the core operating system for its render farm, which is now comprised of thousands of servers used to compute and produce the final frames of DreamWorks Animation’s movies.
