Apple CEO Steve Jobs’ “other” company, Pixar Animation Studios, is switching from Sun Microsystems to Intel, reports c|net. The company, which created the hit movies Monsters Inc. and Toy Story, is replacing servers from Sun in its render farm — a bank of servers that fuses artists’ images into finished film frames — with eight new blade servers from Rackspace. The system contains a total of 1,024 Intel 2.8GHz Xeon processors and runs the open-source Linux operating system. Interestingly, the article points out that at Macworld Expo in January, Intel President Paul Otellini sat in the front row for Jobs’ keynote as a VIP guest of Apple. Later that month, Jobs then delivered the morning keynote address at Intel’s annual sales conference in Las Vegas.
