HP technology was used to help DreamWorks animators create the breath-taking scenes. Artists used more than 200 high performance HP workstations to help design everything in the film—from the Zooster characters to digital effects such as complex fire and highly detailed crowd close-ups. Advanced HP ProLiant BL460c blade technology, geographically dispersed in four server render farms across the United States and India, provided peak compute power at crucial stages of production. The blade servers powered an incredible 200 terabytes of data and more than 65 million render hours.
HP technology has previously been used in creating DreamWorks’ ground-breaking animated features, including the “Shrek” series, ”How to Train Your Dragon,” ”Kung Fu Panda,” ”Kung Fu Panda 2” and “Puss in Boots.”
