|GVS has taken
and expanded its frontier of hardware design and integrated it with
world class software to deliver clients a compact 1U-16U rack mount platform
offering quick, in-house secure access to the power of 64-1024-core highspeed
processors. GVS Render Farm technology leverages the power of the
UNIX-based foundation and directory services architecture to streamline
configuration¡ X while administration tools make it easy to
manage, submit jobs, monitor progress and retrieve results.
For optimization, the Render Farm Queue is a priority based, distributed
network render queue that can manage and distribute processing of
command line based tools such as compositors and render on small and
large networks. No matter what your core application or rendering
need, from After Effect, Maya, Mental Ray, Renderman, or any CGI application
you have a solution to save a great amount of processor intensive
Support for multiple platforms including Windows,R Linux, Mac OSX, Solaris and VMware ready.
True 64-bit from Render Farm OS to Processor
High speed multi-threaded process technology
Dual Fiber channel or 10Gigabit connection to server and Nomadic RAID storage
delivering a data I/O rate of 10 Gbit/sec.
Highly sophisticated bandwidth through dual channel Gigabit enables
GVS Render Farm to send and receive data and management compounds from server
nodes, without clogging the network.
| Extreme user-friendly graphics
interface allows Administrator to stop, pause, resume or delete jobs
or partition available agents into separate clusters, allowing different
groups to share a single controller without interfering with each project
and remain completely anonymous to groups of users on the Render Farm Grid,
while still having access to processors in the Grid.
|| GVS Render Farm automatically
detects when an agent is no longer accessible and reassigns the task to
another system. Essential job information is cached on disk, so your Render
Farm Grid can resume work immediately if you should ever need to reboot
a render node.
Optional controller accessible from the public Internet so any system
can join the Render Farm just by using your hostname or IP address, enabling
secure authentication without passing passwords over the network.
GVS Render Farm is the first distributed computing architecture to
be built into a server operating system. Configured to plug or remain
stand alone in your secure network infrastructure, the GVS Render
Farm has scalable up to 2.2PB storage designed so you don¡¦t
have to worry about your storage needs. And while GVS Render Farm
is easy-to-use and artist friendly, as well as simple to administer,
technically savvy power users can exploit the command line interface
by creating 'wrapper scripts' or custom GUIs to dovetail GVS Render
Farm into existing production pipelines.
With GVS Render Farm, scientists, engineers, animators and digital
content creators can run a single job across clusters of computers
at once. Users can browse for batch files or scripts. Child Process
Priority Class selection allows you to control the priority that Render
Farm will give to the actual renders it launches. Check the Launch
spawned processes with visible windows button if you want the output
from this type of render to always be visible on the screen. When
a job of this type starts, GVS Render Farm will open an Output Window
for the job, and you can monitor the status. The window will automatically
close when the render finishes. Web browser status also shows when
the jobs are completed. When a render node dies or is removed, the
management tools remove the entire job automatically and reassign
it to the next available processor.
GVS Render Farm also has the ability to generate reports to better
help estimate project time line and cost ie: How long the job took
from start to finish, How many CPU hours were involved in total, The
start/end time for the job while rendering.
To make this system and licensing available to any user for a given
time line or project, GVS also offers a rental option for the software
creating an extremely affordable, cost saving solution for last minute
