In recent years, the number of render farms has gradually increased, and the production team is often overwhelmed when face to choose the right render farms. In my opinion, there are four main options for choose the right render farms.

1. Professional service level:
Technical professional level is as important as proficiency. Good technology service is the guarantee for high-efficiency completion of large-scale projects. It is a must for professional render farm to solve various faults caused by software or plugins during rendering. Competitive premise.
2. Professional service equipment:
Large high-end formal server clusters, high-bandwidth data retrieval storage networks, professional control and monitoring devices are the key to measuring the professionalism of render farms. Miscellaneous hybrid clusters, or TCP network storage is a symbol of running a dragon. Storage and retrieval of data can not be separated from the network, it will seriously affect the rendering speed of large projects. In many test, the speed of the single machine is the same, but when in the cluster network is blocked and the efficiency is greatly reduced, the customer’s time and money are wasted, by the way, the customer is unaware of it. Such "cottage clusters" are the scourge of the entire industry.
3. Network service capability
The degree of remote control of fully automatic network access is as important as the service capability of professional remote personnel. The automatic service network must rely on the support of high bandwidth of the terminal, but the semi-automatic service of personnel online is now more designed. As far as the current software and plugin usage is concerned, it is quite difficult to run completely without failure. The rendering mode with real-time on duty system can not only solve the faults in the middle of rendering, but also check the rendering results in real time. With the replacement, with the leak.
4.Rendering costs: We all like cost effective service, some render farms are still using the traditional dollar/GHzh pricing rule, but I prefer the hour*core*unit pricing rule, I think it is much more reasonable.
As the world's leading cloud rendering service platform, Fox Renderfarm has been able to meet the needs of most customers, regardless of system, device, service or security issues, especially, efficiency and service are definitely worth it.
Let's take a look at Fox Renderfarm.
Operating System
In order to achieve convenient and efficient operation, the fox client version has been modified many times. Currently, it is fully capable of undertaking the implementation and operation and maintenance management of an actual commercial system. The operation is also relatively simple: upload-configuration-automatic rendering-automatic download.
The main significance of these efforts is that we combine graphical cluster computing, mass storage services, and metering and billing to build a cloud-based, unified SaaS Internet application.

In the iterative improvement, we would like to thank the users for their support and tolerance, and also put forward various suggestions, which will accompany our system to grow together.
Rendering Device
Our original intention is to use the most powerful clusters to complete ultra-large-scale graphics calculations. At present, we have realized this function. Through the confidence of the device and the user's affirmation, it has become the first cloud rendering farm in Asia, and we want to be at the forefront. Still need to work hard, and if you don't advance, you will retreat.

Parts of Rendering Case

Online Services
Our customer service is online for 7*24 hours and can be answered at any time. If your consultation didn't get a timely response, it should be Chinese New Year's Eve. The customer service brother said that I was impressed by the words: the speed of playing games is not as fast as when I go to work.

No matter what the occasion, the computer is a cascading chat window

TD (Technical Director) is a special existence in the company, we envy them can take the computer to go free, not to be locked in the office for 8 hours.
They said that they are all year round, with their wives going out shopping, carrying computers, it is incredible! The customer service or business phone calls, technical support should be followed up immediately. Sometimes some oversea projects have rendering problems, even in the middle of the night, they have to get up and deal with them.
Fortunately, with the support of a strong development team, most of the tasks are still relatively smooth, so TD's hair is still alive.
We have preset a lot of data and content management options in the system to facilitate the isolation and protection of user data. After all, service providers and users have content protection agreements, and many companies can't afford a leaked lawsuit. And this kind of "related to survival", service providers will only be more cautious.
Rendering Cost
The rendering is divided into CPU rendering and GPU rendering. The above figure is the price comparison of our rendering farm. It is divided into 5 levels. The higher the level, the greater the discount.

There is also a price calculation on the Fox Renderfarm website (for reference only).

You can also try to compare multiple platforms. Now most farms have test services. Fox Renderfarm can be given a $20 coupon for registration, and finish your personal data can get more other $5 coupon. It can be used directly for rendering. You can experience it first.
