 The Stallion And The Penguin

News Forge reports on DreamWorks using Linux to create new animated film.

"PDI/DreamWorks replaced its entire "render farm" with x86-based servers running Linux. For "Spirit," the company created a 250-node Linux cluster for back-end rendering. Over the months, the cluster has grown to its current size of 1,000 CPUs. These servers handle the nitty-gritty work involved in creating what PDI/DreamWorks calls "tradigital animation" -- the blending of 2D and 3D animation."
