Why Use Thinkbox Deadline
Thinkbox Deadline offers many advantages for render management, such as:
High scalability: You can manage thousands of render nodes without any problem, and leverage the power of cloud computing with AWS Portal, a collective set of Deadline features that enables you to more easily extend your on-premises rendering to AWS.
Usage based licensing: You can purchase flexible third-party licenses for cloud nodes from the AWS Thinkbox Marketplace, bring your own licenses, or use a combination of both to grow your render farm elastically with Amazon EC2.
Cost optimization: You can save time and money by launching multiple instances or running concurrent tasks, as well as effectively managing your power consumption by shutting down render nodes that are not in use. You can also reduce your costs by up to 90% by using EC2 Spot Instances, which allow you to bid on unused EC2 capacity.
AWS Portal integration: You can easily integrate your rendering pipeline with AWS, and scale your rendering workloads to hundreds, or even thousands of cores in minutes, and scale down just as quickly, providing incredible compute elasticity and cost control.
Render Farm Deployment Kit: You can use Python to build, customize, and deploy your render farm on AWS using RFDK, a collection of open source software components designed to accelerate the development of custom render farm solutions on AWS.
Deadline Tools: You can use various tools that come with Deadline to enhance your rendering experience, such as Jigsaw, which allows you to split up large frames into arbitrary sized tiles and distribute them over your render farm; Draft, which allows you to perform image manipulation and video encoding operations; Balancer, which allows you to automatically balance your render farm resources; Monitor, which allows you to monitor and control your render farm from any web browser; and more.
