Sun network.com renders PeachPosted in Production by Ton
Sun Microsystems has decided to sponsor the Peach project, by granting hours on their network.com Sun Grid Compute Utility for rendering of the Peach Open Movie. With hundreds of Solaris nodes composed of 64 bit CPU’s and 4 gigs of memory per CPU, Sun Grid will give us virtually unlimited power!
This is also good news for the Solaris users out there, who’ll see a bit more attention and testing efforts for their OS. Further we’ll have to review the current state of renderfarm software and ensure that renderjobs can be properly monitored (blender log files). More food for the stats junks!
(Check the network.com website, it shows a cute Chinese researcher using a Blender magnifier! :)
