Ng Kian Bee, Deputy Director, Games & Digital Entertainment, School of Interactive and Digital Media, Nanyang Polytechnic

Nanyang Polytechnic School of Interactive and Digital Media (SIDM) in Singapore offers digital media courses to local and overseas students. Students and researchers are required to render large amounts of animation and images. Previously, it could take users up to one full day to render files on their individual machines. Because of the processing power required, students and staff were limited in their ability to complete other work while waiting for render file results. SIDM opted to deploy a Windows Compute Cluster Server 2003 environment in a render farm. This enables students and school researchers to render large amounts of high definition images and animation within hours, freeing up individual machines for further course work and research
