Gestion de RenderFarm : Deadline passe en V5


Thinkbox Software annonce le lancement de la version 5 de Deadline, son système complet de gestion de ferme de rendu.
La liste des nouveautés met en avant une configuration facilitée du logiciel pour une administration plus simple, mais aussi une meilleure protection de cette dernière. Un nouveau système de licences devrait rendre Deadline plus souple pour les périodes de rush. On retrouve également des outils permettant de faciliter le diagnostic des problèmes rencontrés, ou une version mobile : l’application iPhone et Android permettra au manager de suivre et gérer la render farm quel que soit le lieu. De quoi travailler même la nuit et le week-end…

Voici la liste complète des nouveautés :

Auto Configuration:
Simplify farm administration by configuring slave settings like the repository path and license server in a single location. If the repository path or license server changes, just update the auto configuration settings instead of applying the changes to each machine individually.

New User System:
Administration features are optionally password protected and all modifications to jobs, tasks and slaves are logged and easily traceable. Deadline’s Access Control System prevents users from inadvertently disrupting other rendering tasks. Additionally, administrators can prevent user impersonation by configuring Deadline to use the system user as the Deadline user for even greater security.

Slave Availability Filter:
Allow users to quickly diagnose a failed job. Click on the job to filter the slave list and display those slaves available to render the selected job. This feature factors in Pools, Groups, White/Blacklisted slaves, and any Limit Groups the job uses.

Flexible licensing model:
Bump up the size of your farm to handle larger loads during crunch time. Our Surge Rental Program makes it easy for users to quickly increase the capacity of their render farm on a weekly basis at affordable rates.

Event plug-ins:
Create plug-ins to have Deadline update in-house pipeline tools such as databases when jobs start and finish rendering. Write custom scripts to submit jobs to the farm or to perform custom pre/post rendering tasks as the job is rendered. All scripts can make use of Deadline’s Iron Python script-based SDK, resulting in endless possibilities.

Statistic Improvements:
Increased accuracy for slave and repository statistics when specifying any given time frame. These statistics can now be displayed in a new detailed graphing system that offers improved controls for viewing and saving graph images to disk.

Remote Mode:
This feature allows companies with multiple facilities to improve performance and latency when controlling and managing massive global render farms remotely.

Deadline Mobile:
Updated for iPhone and Now Android: makes it easy to keep tabs on your render farm by letting you monitor your Deadline jobs from anywhere. With the simple touch of a screen, you can view your render jobs in real time and check on their status within seconds.
