Virtual Vertex Muster is a render farm management system for film production, game development, and the visual effects industry. Built on the top of state-of-the-art technologies coming from ten years of developing and stress testing all around the world, Muster maximizes your render farm and lets you delegate the resources monitoring to a complete automated environment. Made by dynamic fault tolerant services, it takes care of your farm by monitoring its usage, recovering from faults and even power off your racks when they are no longer needed.
Muster lets you manage your render farm with no interruptions in the rendering process. Add more hosts, disconnect them from the farm, start the renders when no one is logged or even when a screen saver starts. This is all handled automatically by Muster assigning tasks on the fly! Your renders will continue under any circumstances!
