Costs associated with high computation render farms.

I thought I'd share with you our recent article where we take an in depth look at the costs associated with high computation render farms. We took into account the cost of each system, infrastructure, power consumption costs, heat loads and air conditioning costs. It should be a useful reference for those looking to get a system like the one described.

that was an interesting read, thought about building a render farm a couple of times. Never thought about alot of that stuff.

Very interesting to see how the cheap method becomes very expensive in the long run.
