As background, I have an AWS account and have deployed and automated provisioning of EC2, S3, and many other AWS services. I am experienced with AWS.
I would like to experiment with rendering (3ds Max and VRAY) on AWS, and Deadline Portal appears to do most of what I had in mind, such as auto-provisioning spot instances and manage assets via S3.
I have read the ThinkBox website regarding on-demand licensing costs and the introduction documentation for Deadline.
However, I have not found a description of how to start using Deadline Portal itself.
When launching a new EC2 instance, I found the Deadline Worker Base and Forwarder AMIs (there are 100s of them), but not an AMI for Deadline Portal or Monitor.
How do I start using Deadline?
