Green Button Special Offer: $0.01 per core hour

Renderfarm Green Button is currently having a special offer. They write:

From now until the end of November 2011 you will be charged just US$0.01 per core hour.

    There is a big mistake in this message. Pricing ise $0.01/PER MINUTE not as you suggest PER HOUR.

    • Bart Veldhuizen

      No, it's correct - see their homepage. Please double-check before you spread doubt ;-)

      • Tjviking

        I spread doubt, because when I registered, the offer suggested something different (on payment form) than the offer suggested. Maybe they have bad description on payment form.

    I have gone to their website and... I can't figure what is green button. Is it a render farm? 

    • Bart Veldhuizen

      Indeed. Missed the word the word 'render farm' in the first sentence of the post? ;)

    I have used Respower mostly, $31 for 30 days 15 minutes task per frame or $10 for 7 days 15 minutes task. However I don't know how many cores I have been using :) ( It has been quite fast though).

      Now these guys at Green Button seem to have a great deal, however I would like to know a bit more: What would be the regular price after Nov 30?

    Now it is 0.01/core/hour,  so what is the minimum cores that we can rent? Also they said to request extra cores we have to wait between 15 or 20 minutes? So there must be a minimum to start the Job? Let's say if I want 200 cores at the beginning is that possible or you won't allow us to do that?

      You don't really get to choose the number of cores. What you do is submit a job and they'll start you off with around 4 or 8 cores. The number of cores assigned to your job will be increased gradually.

      You benefit more when you submit a big job (1 single file), compared to when you submit many small jobs.

    It would be nice if the updated their plugins so that the worked with 2.60a. I don't have a superfast computer something like this will come in handy for Lux, it bets having to run my computer all day long.
