EnFuzion3D 2009 Enables HPC (High Performance Computing) Clusters For Rendering


Siggraph 2009, New Orleans. (August 4th 2009) - Axceleon, a leader in high performance distributed computing solutions for render farms and clusters is exhibiting at Siggraph 2009 at booth 2224 and presenting at Intel’s Siggraph 2009 Theater (Visual Adrenaline with Intel Software) with a presentation entitled “HPC Comes to Hollywood” at Siggraph 2009 in New Orleans.

"This year we opened the doors to meet many new customers, resellers and education institutions who were very interested in EnFuzion. The visitors to our booth for the demonstrations of EnFuzion3D were very impressed by the ease of installation, very minimal management and happy to see their render farms being able to setup in minutes. They were also interested in other verticals of HPC paradigms (Digital Biology, Excel Sheet Computing, Monte Carlo Analysis and many other parametric simulations) where EnFuzion can play vital role in accelerating time to results", said Mr. Duffy, President and CEO of Axceleon

"EnFuzion’s roots are HPC based and its first deployments in the late 90’s and early 2000 were running 1000’s of compute nodes in mission critical environments. Today we see disruptive growth in the 3D animation industry driving demands for HPC like systems and functionality inside studios large and small. These systems must be running 24x7, are mission critical and driving demands for full redundancy of render farm Head Nodes, Compute Nodes and Cluster/Render Management software. Overall we see bigger and faster machines, networks, being required for rendering and of course this will enable even more complex and grandiose visual effects within required project timelines", commented Mr. Duffy.
