DreamWorks SKG has signed a multi-year deal with Cerelink for cloud computing access. Instead of rendering movies like How To Train Your Dragon on thousands of its own computer cores, DreamWorks will use elastic compute resources housed in Cerelink's supercomputing-class facility at the New Mexico Applications Centre (NMCAC). “ …
Why does everything have to be a cloud?
A private cloud sounds like an outsrourced version of how rendering has been done for ages - you use a pool of processors/machines to do indivudual frames/tasks and dedicate resources as required. The only difference here is that the machines are supplied by another company.
Whoa, slow down there maestro...
...there's a *New* Mexico?
...That this won't help them make a movie that doesn't rely on used-up plots and halfwitted pop culture references in lieu of genuine creativity and intrinsic, natural humor.
