Connect multiple machine as one virtual machine

Dear Sir

Can I connect multiple server machine to become one virtual machine as a render farm .
So If I want to render a project , the job order will send to this virtual machine which distributed the project to the render farm.

Is it possible ??

yes although if your host allowed ie it had enough resources just create the render farm in the virtual environment just like it was physical its effectively thesame all you need to make sure your virtual environment has enough resources after the 'p2v' you have some resources left for the host or it will grind to a halt

You can...but only if your APPLICATION supports this. And I doubt very much it would be possible under Windows....again, except if your application supports such a feature.

So the main question is, what is the rendering software you are talking about?

No.

You cannot assign more vCPUs to a VM than a single host can support, so virtualization is no use in a HPC environment. People simulate HPC clusters using virtualization but that is just to test the HPC software when hardware is limited, it gives less performance than using non-virtualized hosts.

I don’t think you are on the right way with this. Adobe Premier makes a heavy usage of the video card resources and the servers are not famous with good video.

Server farms are for server applications like SQL, SharePoint, Web applications, etc.

I would invest in a hi-performance workstation with the best video card in my budget.
