CG industry belongs to design industry, and any project produced has copyright issues. The artists stay up all night to produce projects, even if a small detail is also the mental crystallization. It is natural for them to hope their achievements not to be plagiarized. Hence, the confidentiality is not only very important for the services providers, but also is one of the key factors the customers will consider.
Before the born of cloud storage of render farm, the regional factor is always the main factor when customers use render farm service. The render farms which come closest to the production companies can always get customers’ first considerations. Unquestionably, the reason why customers do so is to save time. Even if they adore the form of express delivery can’t be assured, because customers not only needs to worry about whether the files would be lost or not, but also their files can be ensured to arrive on time. There’re a lot of unstable factors in the course of delivery that makes customers stay in worry and think again and again when they choose the render farm.
Is cloud rendering with cloud storage safer than render farm? Fox Renderfarm is the first render farm built on the basis of cloud computing technology in China. In fact, no matter domestic or foreign render farms, one of the selling points of cloud rendering compared to traditional render farms is its confidentiality and security.
Firstly, it is the first step to ensure the safety of the projects that the rendering services have overcome geographical limitations and now rendering project files are passed directly between the client and server farms, which can avoid the possible impact and losses from the artificial factors and other aspects.
Secondly, it is the full use of the advantages of cloud storage. In 2012, "Legend" of cloud storage shaped, which are Google Drive, Microsoft SkyDrive, Dropbox and Apple's iCloud. Although each cloud storage of them has its own characteristics and the current development stage is not the same either, they share one common point, which is backup and restore functions. They are the very important functions for rendering projects. Files are stored in the "cloud, which we can’t see and touch. And there’s a strong technical support behind cloud computing, even if these files lost, they can also be recovered through backup and restore, which is the second step to protect the safety of the project and one of the core strengths of cloud rendering as well.
In fact, the advantages of cloud rendering are obvious, which is superior to the traditional render farm both in the security and confidentiality. In Fox Renderfarm with blender render farm, maya render farn, good render farm software, vray render farm and 3ds max render farm, professional customer service and serious attitude provide a guarantee to confidentiality of customer's project. Render farm with cloud storage feature will bring more benefits for rendering in the future, such as the new customer-end features we are developing now.
