While at SNW Fall we were given an opportunity to tour the DreamWorks Animation data center in Redwood City, California. The entertainment field is a massive consumer of storage, with the animation field specifically having a special set of technology needs as a movie or TV show winds through a typical multi-year development cycle. Storage requirements for a new movie from DreamWorks Animation start out with scanned artwork or hand drawn artwork on tablets, scaling up all the way through to the final end product movie. Along the way though, every frame is handled by several artists and sound experts as DreamWorks strives to deliver their next blockbuster. Storage scales heavily as the show moves into production, then scale down almost as fast as data gets archived toward the end.
