DreamWorks to bake 3D flicks on desert cloud

,----[ Quote ]
| In a sign of the economic times, DreamWorks Animation has inked a deal with 
| the New Mexico Computing Applications Center to use spare capacity to help  
| render its 3D films. 
| 
| [...]
| 
| The whole shebang runs Novell's SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 10 and SGI's 
| ProPack 5 extensions for HPC workloads. On the Linpack Fortran benchmark 
| test, it has a sustained performance of 133.2 teraflops. According to 
| Governor Bill Richardson's office - which made the announcement of the 
| DreamWorks deal - this makes Encanto the largest non-federal supercomputer in 
| the world.
