IT challenges at Lucasfilm

At the LinuxWorld Conference & Expo in San Francisco, Lucasfilm's director of IT operations, Kevin Clark, spoke about the difficulties in networking and providing data storage for their large collection of companies--including locations in Singapore and the remote Marin Headlands. He discusses how they managed to move to a new facility in the middle of production for Star Wars: Episode III, and how they're looking ahead, with advances like running private fiber lines right to desktops.
