Deadline is a hassle-free administration and compute management toolkit for Windows, Linux, and Mac OSX based render farms, and supports over 80 different content creation applications out of the box.
It offers a world of flexibility and a wide-range of management options for render farms and compute clusters of all sizes, and allows users the freedom to easily access any combination of on-premise or cloud-based resources for their rendering and processing needs.
Deadline’s unique architecture removes the need for a centralized manager application by using a highly-scalable database and basic file sharing to manage the farm. As long as your Database and File Server are running, Deadline is running.
