Guest blog written by Rosemarie Chiovari, HP ISS Integrated Market Sales Enablement


Animal Logic is one of the world’s leading design, visual effects, and animation companies.  From studios in Sydney, Australia and Los Angeles, California, Animal Logic produces award-winning work.  Their artists give animals a personality and voice in films including Babe, and create parallel universes for films such as The Matrix.  This year Animal Logic will be in full production on several projects including the 3D live action film, Walking with Dinosaurs 3D.


As movie-making technology progress, server performance is critical to the ability to produce realistic images on screen. HP server blades provide the power, efficiency and density Animal Logic needs for their artists to continue to work while rendering applications are running in the background. with HP ProLiant server blades, memory-intensive renders can be run on every server to enable faster iterations of shots and help the creative process.   In addition, with up to 3x faster rendering on HP blades, Animal Logic is able to complete projects in time and on budget.


Alex Timbs, Head of IT, Animal Logic summed up the value proposition succinctly by stating, “We chose to partner with HP because HP differentiates itself through its relationships.”
