How is Qube! licensed?
Qube! is licensed per host on standard servers and desktops with up to 8 CPU cores. Qube! is licensed per CPU sockets on Intel® Itanium® 2-based machines regardless of the number of CPU cores. Each Supervisor, generally one per studio, requires a license and a dedicated host. These licenses are always floating – not locked to any particular node and not locked to any OS – so you can direct work to any machine in the farm, without dedicating a license to that machine.
Though Qube! looks like a render farm management app <rather than animation software>.
