A Renderfarm is a combination of interconnected computers, which deliver high performance processing. The system processes jobs at a very speed and gives quality output. More specifically, the system delivers high quality animations and graphic designs. The images and videos are produced in their original form, i.e. as required by the designer. There is always satisfaction when it comes to the products of the farm system. The system has therefore come out as the most important tools in production of films and movies. Further, the processing facilities of the system are available to all. The users have access to the facilities regardless of their earning capacity or locations. Although the facilities of the farm system can be easily obtained, there are number of characteristics that distinguish between the services that the system would deliver. The user must assess these characteristics to establish whether the farm system would be the appropriate one or not.
One of these characteristics is the speed of processing. The user of the system must be satisfied that the speed of the farm system is within the requirements of that user. Although the rendering service is supposed to be very fast, some systems are slower. The user would first need to establish the speed of the farm system identified. Slower system delay in processing and would very highly inconvenience the user. To avoid such an event, the user must seek for fast speed rendering system.
The second consideration is the reliability of the system. The system must deliver correctly and accurately. The user must evaluate the reliability aspect of the farm system and obtain it reliability rating. The higher the reliability of the rendering service, the better the farm system. A system would be referred to as reliable when it processing jobs correctly and accurately, it should not distort any formation at all. The system should not fail at any time. Associated with reliability, is the efficiency and effectiveness.
The third consideration is the support provided by the service provider, the main concerns here is the support available to the user from the remote location (the service provider). The user must establish whether there is unlimited service (24/7). The user must not get stuck and stays like that all the time. The user support must be prompt and always available.
The fourth characteristic is the security of the information available to the service. The user must establish whether the system has very high security and safety measure of the information held by them. The means of ensuring safety and security must be very convincing and above any doubt. Evaluate the security measure in place and be convinced that they are worth your data.
Another characteristic is the access to the service. This is a measure of how easily the farm system can be accessed. The user must be capable of gaining access to the online rendering service 24/7. Usually, the accessibility is determined by the internet connection by the service provider. If the user connections by the provider are poor, the user would have problem access the farm system. Lack of efficient connection leads to unreliability of the render services.
