Welcome to ClusterFarm.net - A privately owned KeyShot render farm based in Europe.


Quick News!

BYOL will be availible - bring your own license. If you don't have powerful enough machine for yourself, We can rent out a machine for you, (Keyshot, Vray, Redshift, Corona - any render engine that uses CPU's as their main rendering engine), pricing and availibility can be enquired via email. Up to 36 cores of Intel Xeon based power!

What is ClusterFarm?

ClusterFarm is a privately-owned, European-based KeyShot render farm and hardware provider focused on delivering more flexibility to the KeyShot users and meeting their rendering deadlines.

What sets ClusterFarm apart from other render farms?

ClusterFarm focuses on one program, KeyShot. We provide our CPU-powered rendering service to simple, one-man shops as well as companies who have high volume rendering needs. Additionally, we provide scalable hardware options for those who desire to use their KeyShot Network Rendering license to access more CPU cores and faster results.


How much performance do we have?

We currently have availible 96 cores worth of processing power at our disposal, we will be expanding to even more cores and physical machines as we grow. We're using Intel Xeon X5675's in 8U's, we're expanding constantly.


Why consider a renderfarm?

The question we like to ask people is: "Do YOU wish to stay behind your PC, pay for the electricity, can't work on other projects?" That's where we come in. We help you to do more while your renders are rendering on our farm, thus giving you the flexibility to do other stuff while our farm crunches away at your renders.


Who uses it?

From a single one man, to huge companies, the need for calculational horsepower is always needed. No matter who you are, if you have a need for speed or on a tight schedule, this is the point we can speed up your process.


From what point is the rendering time calculated?

The rendering time is calculated by the master server that deploys the render jobs. The amount of time each machine crunches the rendering to reach 100% of completion is the actual rendering time that will be billed for. With every Cluster Starter plan, we send out a log telling the time the rendering was initiated and finished thus the time period is shown.


What are the guarantees?

They are as follows:

Your files will be uploaded to Google Drive either preset by you or by us if you are not using the Keyshot Network Rendering Que to download them directly to your PC / Mac. (we also keep a copy of the render output in our master PC)

If the end files are lost we can give you a second chance to render the file or to fix the problematic render.

If the renderfarm is down for maintenance or is facing a technical error, the unusable rendertime will not be needing financing, we will also give you extra time on the renderfarm for the downtime.

All of your entered files to the renderfarm are behind an encrypted connection.

Every client besides Cluster Starter users will get a Keyshot Network Rendering Que username and a password. To delete any duplicated jobs or jobs that might result in an unwanted endresult.


What if I have a project that is under NDA?

None of the files that you enter will ever be publicly entered anywhere. We as server and security geeks are familiar with the outcome, so it's in our DNA to keep files safe, and away from public sources. If you do still wish to send over files to the renderfarm, and prior to that you need an NDA agreement to be signed, we'll be happy to sign any forms, security is essential these days.

Need a new worksation or looking to build your own render farm?

We can help you out on this topic too. Our hardware partner Network Tomorrow is a certified SuperMicro server and workstation provider based in EU. Network Tomorrow is known for providing hardware for datacenters, educational institutions and standalone CAD / CGI media creators alike. For an inquiry of a render farm build or a standalone workstation, write to us: info@tomorrow.ee

Terms of Service and prior to contact information.

For ordering, please send us an email, stating your desired plan, the rough estimate on how long you are planning on using the farm and a little insight to the scene setup for us to recommend a suitable rendering plan.

For Cluster Daily™ users we recommend contacting us atleast 2-3 days prior to rental period, we'll make room on the farm just for you, you are our priority.

Every rendering order will get support when needed, prior to sending files and during that process.

Some ground rules:

We do not take responsibility for scenes that we're not set up by us, thus every mistake you make in Keyshot, will reflect in the end-result. Therefore we do not give way to re-renders if the re-render can not be done within the timeframe of the seleced renderplan.

A refund may only be issued if the farm is either down or the client wishes to cancel the order within 1 day from the start of placing the order. If the farm can't be used by the client during their reserved time period, the rendering time shall be postponed and a record of it will be kept in our database and also the client will get a copy of that.

If the client finishes using the farm ahead of time, the unused time does not give the right to ask for a partial refund or a secondary time crediting option of the previous unused render time.

If the client uses the farm and is on a tight schedule, the render that is in progress still will render however long it will take, we can't meet your deadline in no way or form if the settings of the render are exeeding your deadline or render plan in the first place.

If the Client has connection problems we offer a way to connect to the master server directly via either Remote Desktop Connection or Teamviewer. We have Master server that also has Keyshot installed on it. So you can transfer all of your files to the master server and not worry about connection issues with the Que program on your side. - In some cases your ISP might have either blocked or disabled the ports we're using. Thus this option might come in handy.

Full refunds will not be issued to any plans, even if the render output is not meeting your expectations

Partial refunds will only be issued if the client is stating that his/her/their render was not completed within the timeframe from starting of the render plan to the end of render plan (the render can't be completed within 24 hours, or 1 week on continuous rendering mode)

VIP customers:

These clients are entitled for a 20% discount after their 5th order of either Cluster Daily™ or Cluster Weekly™ plan.

VIP customers get a chance to be apart of a montly lottery for Cluster Daily™ rendertime. An e-mail will be sent out monhtly to a lucky customer.
