Computing Center capacity for Titanic Movie in 1997

Wolfgang Pietsch's picture

This article by Daryll Strauss has so much historic value because today (2008) we laugh about capacities they had in 1997. I don't laugh about the creativity and effectiveness they build up with the equipment of that time but these days you go to another ALDI-store, buy 5 Home Computers and have 5 Terabytes of disk storage available. This is the amount of disk capacity, which Daryll and his team had available to produce this All-Time-Historic-Movie "Titanic" by James Cameron with so much inspiration to computer development. And... LINUX was the major player in the business then!!! Well, what could I say more, I like it...

All the Best from Berlin, Germany - Wolfgang

(By the way, some years ago Linux Journal had a German translation of Daryll's article (mmmhhh... I did it) online. It's gone. Is it still in any of those archives...? ;)

Linux Backup and Recovery Webinar

Most companies incorporate backup procedures for critical data, which can be restored quickly if a loss occurs. However, fewer companies are prepared for catastrophic system failures, in which they lose all data, the entire operating system, applications, settings, patches and more, reducing their system(s) to “bare metal.” After all, before data can be restored to a system, there must be a system to restore it to.

In this one hour webinar, learn how to enhance your existing backup strategies for better disaster recovery preparedness using Storix System Backup Administrator (SBAdmin), a highly flexible bare-metal recovery solution for UNIX and Linux systems.
