    AE render farm Help needed


      Hello All,

      James here, I'm new to the community, glad to be here.

      I am in the process of building a render farm and need some advice on the particulars of going about it.

      I'm not a newbie with computers, but I am a newbie regarding setting up a rendering farm.


      Here is the equipment I have:


      Main computer Tower:

      4 core processor that unlocks to 6 core.

      Asus board.

      ATI Radeon 5570 graphics card

      16GB ram


      Server Hardware:

      3 x Proliant DL380 G4 servers



      I have a couple questions on all this, first, will these servers work for a rendering farm?

      Second, if so, how would I go about configuring the software on all of them to communicate?

      Third, what could I expect from the increase in rendering with this rig?


      Thanks in advance for any help you can provide.
