Using Google Cloud rendering with Arnold (for Maya)

I'm considering using Google Cloud Compute for production rendering (using Arnold) from Maya. I've only been rendering to Arnold from within Maya so far, haven't done any network/batch rendering.

Can Google Cloud Compute's virtual be used to batch render from Maya? Would appreciate any advice about how to set this up. Currently have a license for 5 seats, mtoA 3.2.0.

I've used it for the first time, last year. I think is great but i have no experience with other cloud rendering and\or batch render with Arnold. Is simple to use, someone says is limited. But very powerfull and integrated with arnold. The maya UI ZYNC plugin is simple, more simple. Try it. When you subscrive you have some money free to spend to test if you want. The support is very fast.

Wgath else. I don't know.

Thanks, Dario. Did you use it with Arnold? Not sure how the licensing aspect handles pre-emptible virtual 'machines'.
