It only seems yesterday that Silicon Graphics Workstations powered animation in "Terminator" and we marveled at the graphics.
Today it takes tons of CPU power to deliver a hug between furry creatures. Until you harness the power of columnar databases like Vertica. See the difference in Kung Fu Panda 3
Combining the power of Vertica with Big Data Analytics will empower enterprises and public sector organisations to hug all that structured and unstructured data to improve productivity, reduce costs, increase outputs and face the challenges of delivering more alongside reducing budgets

Until recently, having two furry characters hug on screen at DreamWorks Animation—whose latest film, Kung Fu Panda 3, was released January 29—often became a roadblock in the studio’s creative process. Why? It takes a ton of CPUs to create an animated scene where two furry characters physically intertwine. Creators of 2006’s “Over the Hedge,” for instance, had to limit the number of hugs the characters exchanged because of CGI limitations in the hardware and software at the time.
