Cerelink to use NM Supercomputer (update)

In an example of how investment in media and tech resources is paying off and moving forward, Governor Richardson announced plans by Cerelink Digital Media Group to use Encanto, New Mexico's Computing Application Center for 3D rendering.

Cerelink DMG has issued a clarification of its relationship with Dreamworks in use of Encanto:

Cerelink® Digital Media Group Clarifying Information
Regarding Partnership With DreamWorks Animation SKG Inc.

RIO RANCHO, NM – February 19, 2009 - This information seeks to clarify and outline details regarding the partnership between Cerelink Digital Media Group, the New Mexico Computing Applications Center (NMCAC) and DreamWorks Animation SKG Inc. Earlier this week Gov. Bill Richardson announced that Cerelink DMG entered into an agreement with the Glendale, California-based company.

While Cerelink Digital Media Group will be using NMCAC’s resources to explore the delivery of on-demand and scalable computing resources as a cloud service, DreamWorks Animation will not be using the NMCAC supercomputer, Encanto, as part of this partnership. While we believe the state’s supercomputer has the potential to be used by digital media companies in the future, Cerelink Digital Media Group will instead be building out compute capacity for this effort using DreamWorks’ standard rendering platform, Intel based c-class HP blades.

The potential for future collaborations involving the use of Encanto remain open, however no part of the agreement announced on February 17, 2009 was intended to associate the collaboration with DreamWorks Animation and the use of this supercomputer.
