A Global Entertainment Leader that Brings Dragons and Pandas to Life with Data

DreamWorks Animation has long captivated audiences with such beloved franchises as Shrek, Kung Fu Panda, Madagascar, Trolls and How to Train Your Dragon. Global audiences are invited into imaginative worlds where they fall in love with DreamWorks’ charismatic animated characters, while behind the scenes, petabytes of data come together to create magic. With NetApp technology, DreamWorks quickly and efficiently manages the massive amounts of data needed to make its animated films come to life.
