I've had a bit of a search and nothing here helps so much. How much more efficient is 3 machines in a cluster over 3 machines that are standalone? We've been rendering on several stand alone machines over the years and IT now wishes to setup a cluster. Sounds great but how much more efficient / quicker is clustering? They want to start with 3 machines but I can't imagine 3 machines being quicker at excecuting the render tasks than say the ten stand alone machines on the current render farm. Would that be true? I mean, I'm all for adopting a better system but when they're about to roll out possibly 30 or 40+ machines that I could have the render software installed on, isn't it crazy to step back to a fraction of the amount of computer?
