All of which are large enough to have their own internal setup. None of those companies would outsource that.

Atari/Infogrames, Ubisoft, Vivendi/Activision | Blizzard's European division and that's about it.

Yup, I agree with Ashley too. Once you can provide us with bandwidth we pay for then go on to do projects like this.

/me high-fives Ashley

Made my night dear

Perhaps spend all this time effort and money on upgrades WITHOUT putting the cost directly on us by introducing setup fee's till you're all payed off?

Nvidia does this as well (since last year actually). That's hard to beat.

It takes a huge amount of time and effort to get this working right - I wouldn't waste your time trying to branch out to this, you won't be able to do it well.

http://www.respower.com offers this at a proper level - it's all they do and they do it well.

Do something better and easier with this hardware, something like Folding@home

Hello,
This may be due to the success of James Cameron's Avatar, or perhaps
because 3D TV coming soon in our rooms in the house
we have more and more requests for computing infrastructures
3D images. In any case, it moves and there are projects that are
under discussion. So as Ovh communicates little about the fact that we
some servers in our data centers, we estimate the demand for these
infrastruc. We think therefore currently implementing a
provision of "supercomputer" to deliver a power Calculator
equivalent to 4000 cores simultaneously with 8TB of RAM and several hundred
To the temporary storage. The goal for us is to rent this below
"weekly" or "month" in an environment of choice (Linux / Windows)
connected via VPN to other computing facilities for transfer
secure data and to calculate the images already calculated.

That said, we still lack some information on the needs
accurate and relevant technologies to implement in this offer
we want "turnkey" ... are we part of Autodesk Maya MentalRay,
Isilon, Exanet, Aspera or other technology? If you need this kind
infra or know of people who seek to use them, thank you
to get the info that host regional Roubaix Valley seeks
Beta testers to develop such services, necessarily with
good prices and quantities of core Quazi available in unlimited
time records. A single contact email: oles@ovh.net

Thank you in advance

Great now OVH can make a better advert.

You would be better posting this on the blender forum.
