Yet Another Movie Chooses HP

I have a scoop that another movie recently chose to use HP blade servers to finalize production. While I can not disclose the studio, I can say that it is not their first venture with HP blade servers. The studio used quite a bit of blade server processing power with 384 HP BL460’s each with dual quad-core Intel CPUs and 16 to 32GB of RAM. That equates to 768 CPUs and 3,072 processing cores!

The studio used the blades for a period of around 4 months. It’s not clear as to whether the movie was live action or animated, but I’m pretty sure it was for a sequel of an well known animated movie.

I’ve previously blogged about HP’s success with movie studios, but I would like to know if Dell or IBM have provided technology for any movies. If you have any scoops, let me know!

    One thing that I find more interesting, back when WETA studios were making LoTRs, all they where using was a stack of clone boxes running AMD CPUs.

    I guess it really doesn’t matter which brand you use as long as you get the job done!
