As a follow-up to yesterday's post on the amazing virtual 3D camera magic behind avatar, it's cool to see WETA using MySQL too. The processing power required to render these new ultra-realistic digital worlds includes 40,000 processors, 104 terabytes of RAM, 17GB/minute of storage for the final cut making WETA's renderfarm #196-199 on the Top 500. As John Lasseter always says, "the art challenges the technology and technology inspires the art". I cannot wait to see the worlds our students will create in an inter-connected network of 3-D Wonderland servers and hope it's powered by Oracle-Sun systems.
