TomD_Arch Posted September 10, 2015 Share Posted September 10, 2015 I tried to set this up thinking it would be easy, but there is nothing easy about this unless you have a degree in network administration or something... "The basic setup of the file server is having an instance equipped with enough RAM to accommodate for good file caching performance. We use an n1-highmem-4 instance as a file server to serve 50 n1-standard-32 rendering instances. Then we attach additional persistent disk storage (in increments of 1.5TB for high IOPS) to the file server instance to hold projects and applications. Using ZFS for this pool of persistent disks, the file server's storage can be increased on-demand, even while rendering is in progress. For increased ZFS caching performance, local SSD disks can be attached to the file server instance (feature in beta). It’s all really up to what you need for your specific project. Set up will vary based on how many instances you’re planning on using, and what kind of performance you’re looking for." -Fredrik Averpil, Technical Director at Industriromantik WTF??? Has anyone else tried to use Google's service? I thought this was going to be a lot easier to set up. More intuitive. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
