Hey all, I’ve been working on a simple but endlessly versatile render farm manager.
The goal of SARFIS Pro is to let users set up a render farm of their own over LAN and or WAN with minimal effort.
Easily handle multiple 1000s of machines.
Very low CPU / RAM usage.
Sub millisecond request times (LAN)
The ability to run tasks with any software not just Blender.
Node based task designer.
We have been using older versions of SARFIS in production for years with over 2.5k machines online at times and with single jobs over 100k tasks/frames so we decided to polish it up and release it to the public.
At the moment we have a closed beta with future plans to allow people to buy SARFIS Pro for very very cheap. Just a few dollars for people who just want to use it on their home machines. Of course we will have larger plans but my goal is to help every day blender users not just studios / companies
Here are a few pictures of our work in progress GUI, no nodes yet but they are coming very soon!
Quick mock-up of how the nodes might work.
If you would like to help shape the future of SARFIS Pro feel free to join our discord and join the closed beta
