HP to automate IT infrastructure of DreamWorks Animation

MUMBAI: DreamWorks Animation has selected HP to automate its IT infrastructure. By deploying HP Datacenter Care - Infrastructure Automation, HP is providing an agile deployment model, enabling DreamWorks Animation to manage its infrastructure as code to continuously deliver applications and services more quickly and reliably. 


According to IDC, the average number of application deployments per month for Fortune 1000 companies is expected to double in two years. By automating, high-performing organizations can deploy code 30 times more frequently with 50 per cent fewer failures.


“As we continuously push the boundaries of digital animation, we require a much faster and more reliable way to deliver applications and IT services. With a strong technology partner like HP, we are moving toward a new agile model that will enable IT with a greater capacity to innovate,” said DreamWorks Animation head of global technology operations Derek Chan.


For more than a decade, HP solutions and services have supported all areas of DreamWorks Animation’s production processes, digital infrastructure and business divisions. This latest collaboration with HP will provide advice, support and tools to help DreamWorks Animation transform business ideas into customer value through software development and IT service delivery with agility, speed, efficiency, and reliability. For IT operations, this service will enable fast release cycles without interrupting production systems.


HP Datacenter Care - Infrastructure Automation features open source tools, including Chef, to improve reliability and agility for IT environments. Chef’s IT automation platform turns infrastructure into code so datacenter management is versionable, repeatable and significantly less costly.


“Automating infrastructure makes IT a strategic asset that can meet the growing demands being placed on IT teams to rapidly deliver applications and IT services. With Datacenter Care - Infrastructure Automation, we’re providing DreamWorks Animation high degrees of automation and collaborative software delivery processes,” added HP senior vice president and general manager technology services support Scott Weller.


With HP’s robust support and advice tailored to DevOps environments, DreamWorks Animation will be able to reliably adopt and scale lean and agile IT. The HP Datacenter Care - Infrastructure Automation global Center of Excellence (CoE) will provide guidance and best practices for infrastructure as code and processes, along with support for tools that automate how DreamWorks Animation builds, deploys, and manages infrastructure. HP will also conduct proactive assessments and review tools usage quarterly to identify challenges, opportunities for improvement, and plan for future needs.
