Rendering in the Cloud / Avere for Cloud File Storage: Google Cloud Platform
« Last post by Render Guru on February 26, 2016, 10:22:31 PM »
Google Cloud Platform hosted a special event for infrastructure specialists working in the entertainment industry in the spring of 2015. Avere's Jim Thompson, lead media and entertainment systems architect at Avere, presented to the group, introducing Avere for cloud file storage, using Google Cloud Platform.

In this video, you'll hear Jim talk about:

  • How Avere virtual machines (vFXTs) work
  • How large special effects studios are using Avere with Google Cloud Platform to manage peaks in rendering workflows (cloud bursting) and minimize latency to remote users (WAN caching)
  • How to diversify storage over multiple tiers using on-premises core filers and Google Cloud Storage for resiliency and cost-effective storage management.

Description
The user is unable to submit a job to a 6.8-1 supervisor for certain jobtypes, most notably Maya and VRED.  No indication is given to the user why the submission has failed, inspecting the supervisor's log shows:

ERROR: supervisor has rejected job(s) - maya support unavailable

All platforms

Installing the fix with the Qube Installer
The patched 6.8-1a supervisor package has been added to the publicly available 6.8-1 Installer manifest file.  Start the Qube Installer on the supervisor and either re-download the 6.8-1 manifest from the public repository or select the 6.8-1 manifest from your local repository and select "Update" when informed a newer version of the 6.8-1 manifest is available.  Select "Upgrade Installed", you should see in the version column that supervisor will be upgraded from 6.8-1 to 6.8-1a. 

Installing the fix manually
Download the 6.8-1a supervisor installation package for your supervisor's operating system  at http://repo.pipelinefx.com/downloads/pub/qube/6.8-1/
