Dedicated Servers - how does it work?

The main features of this Renderownia Świerk service is the maximum flexibility, easy access (minimised formalities) and financial attractiveness with the clear preference for large orders.

 
Flexibility:

We offer three types of servers. Servers can be managed by Windows or Linux. There are no limitations on the rendering software (Customer provides licenses for their chosen software). The required duration of the service (the length of the Session) can be determined with an accuracy of one day (with a minimum of 7 days). During the Session (but not later than 2 business days before its completion) The customer can prolong the Session without losing the discounts granted and without necessity of a next initial payment.

 
Formalities:

Any interested Customer will sign with us an endless framework agreement (on paper). Based on the agreement all other communication is done electronically. In that way we agree on terms and conditions for carrying out the particular Sessions of the service. For each Session individually we set the type of renderer software, the number of servers, Session duration in days and financial conditions (size of a discount offered on top of price-list charges).


 Price:

The starting point for the price agreed for a single Session of the service is a price list. It takes into account differences in the performance of individual server types (based on Cinebench R15 test) and gives a clear preference for long-term or multiple servers Sessions. It is worth emphasizing that each session is preceded by a two days long unpaid period of access to a computer system allowing for testing and uploading the input data and another up to five days long period, also unpaid, enabling the results (output data) download.

 

Software:

The Client may use any software providing the licenses by himself. Additionally the Renderownia Świerk may offer access to the following software:

  • 3ds Max + V-Ray,
  • Maya + V-Ray,
  • Blender,
  • RealFlow,
  • 3ds Max plugins (MultiScatter, ForestPack, RailClone and Autograss).
