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 Management with Red Hat Satellite: Measuring Business Impact and ROI

Linux has become a key foundation for supporting today's rapidly growing IT environments. Linux is being used to deploy business applications and databases, trading on its reputation as a low-cost operating environment. For many IT organizations, Linux is a mainstay for deploying Web servers and has evolved from handling basic file, print, and utility workloads to running mission-critical applications and databases, physically, virtually, and in the cloud. As Linux grows in importance in terms of value to the business, managing Linux environments to high standards of service quality — availability, security, and performance — becomes an essential requirement for business success.

White Paper
Private PaaS for the Agile Enterprise

If you already use virtualized infrastructure, you are well on your way to leveraging the power of the cloud. Virtualization offers the promise of limitless resources, but how do you manage that scalability when your DevOps team doesn’t scale? In today’s hypercompetitive markets, fast results can make a difference between leading the pack vs. obsolescence. Organizations need more benefits from cloud computing than just raw resources. They need agility, flexibility, convenience, ROI, and control.

Stackato private Platform-as-a-Service technology from ActiveState extends your private cloud infrastructure by creating a private PaaS to provide on-demand availability, flexibility, control, and ultimately, faster time-to-market for your enterprise.
