Its Pixars own rendering engine. It renders 3d animations and models with unbelievable realism. Bugs Life was rendered with it and i believe Toy Story also used it.

Pixar uses several tools. Im not sure what they use for which parts but their platforms are Mac and SGI so the choices become a bit more limited. Probably Lightwave, Alias Wavefront, and if i recall they also have their own modeler which i dont think is commercially available.
