The Death Star is the name of the render farm owned by Industrial Light & Magic (ILM). It is a cluster computer originally built by SGI. Since then, it has been converted into a Linux system built by RackSaver (now Verari Systems) with AMD processors. The system originally had 1,500 processors in 750 nodes, this figure was doubled for Star Wars: Episode III – Revenge of the Sith. ILM tends to be quiet about their supercomputer, so its current configuration is not known.
