Main Features Compared
(*) Relative file paths are recommended for use on GridMarkets. We do have limited support for absolute paths, but not to the extent that Zync had. We do support multiple directories and are able to utilize custom environment variables to maintain consistency within file structures. Questions? Contact us at Support@GridMarkets.com.
Our pricing is determined by the choice of A) service level and B) machine power.
The Service Level choices below decide the number of accessible concurrent machines when rendering. Pressed to get a project done fast - go for Rush. No worries - go for Economy. The choice of setting can be changed at any time via the GridMarkets user portal (for which a GridMarkets account is required to access).
(Need more than 60 machines? See our Subscription model.)
Power Level options for CPU and GPU resources are shown below. These choices can be changed at anytime.
* Costs are represented in $US/machine-hour. We charge by the machine-second. Costs are all inclusive (i.e. machine time; operating system and software licenses; data egress and 15 days of data storage are included).
"OB" refers to a machine's approximate Octane Benchmark performance used to deliver the service.
Note: To help balance its machine inventory, GridMarkets may run your submission on the performance equivalent of your machine selection. Your project costs and performance will not be impacted in such cases.
GridMarkets credits are used to pay for our service. They do not expire, are not refundable and can be purchased On Demand or by Subscription (the Subscription option discounts credits for large jobs or sustained work). Purchase credits via the GridMarkets user portal or via the buttons below.
Other credit related bits and bobs . . . .
To ensure your job runs to completion, maintain sufficient credits.
As your jobs run, you will receive emails warning of low credits.
For real-time low credit warnings, see HERE.
If all credits have been consumed, frames running at the time will continue to run until your GridMarkets Credit Overdraft Limit has been reached (see FAQ "What is the GridMarkets Credit Overdraft Limit?…), but pending frames will not be run.
Suspended submissions can be resumed once a positive credit balance is restored.
