transfer files

Step 3. Transfer files

To save your time and money, you should transfer your files from your PC to our remote server before connecting to it. There are 2 ways for you to transfer files:

1. Third-party cloud services

One of the most effective and convenient ways for you to transfer your files to our remote server is via popular cloud services such as Dropbox, Google Drive, One Driver. Thanks to our special and unique Data transfer method in the world, your files can be transferred even when you have not connected to our server yet.

For example, you set up Dropbox on your PC and the remote server as well, then all the files that you upload via Dropbox will be easily and quickly synchronized without downloading them on the internet. You just need to go to the remote server and take your files from Dropbox to use as normal.

2. GpuHub_sync tool

Besides, you can transfer files to the remote server by using GpuHub_sync tool that we provide you. You download the installer of GpuHub sync on the user panel as the picture below and set up.

Tips: If you cannot download GpuHub_sync tool for Mac OS, please read the 9th error and solution at this link

We now support 3 Operating Systems:

Set up GpuHub sync tool and sign in

You click the button Upload or drag & drop your files to the tool. 

After uploading data to the tool, they will be automatically synchronized to the Z drive which is a network drive on the remote server. Depending on the amount of data you upload, it will take time to sync them to the remote server. In case you cannot see your files in the Z drive, please contact us.

This picture shows data storage capacity in the GpuHub_sync tool that you can upload. If you need more, please contact us.

Step 4. Create a new Image

iRender now provides 2 main services: GPUHub and CPUHub. Depending on your demand, you select an appropriate service package. If you need us to recommend which server package is suitable for you, don’t hesitate to contact us.

Click to create a new machine and select a package you want to use.

You click create a clean machine without pre-installed software”

We have some installers for common software in the X drive, please refer them HERE. If you use different software or different versions (such as Unreal Engine, Daz Studio, etc), you can upload the installers or plugins first via the Dropbox or GpuHub sync. Next, when you are in the remote server, copy the installers or plugins to Desktop or C drive. Then you set up and add your license key.

Step 5. Boot a machine

After creating a new Image, you need to “boot a machine” and wait for a couple of minutes.

Tips: To save your boot time for the next usage: take care of the state of your Image

  • Good Image: you should save your files on our Desktop, the C & D Drive less than 20GB
  • Normal Image: when you save your files on our Desktop, the C & D Drive over 30GB
  • Bad Image: when you save your files on our Desktop, the C & D Drive over 50GB

You can connect to a server or multiple servers at the same time.

For normal users, you are able to create 2 Images. If the total of money you top up is at least 250$, you can use 3 Images at the same time. If you would like to create more, please contact us

All images that you create are reusable. Use the server as if it were your personal computer.

Step 6. Connect to the remote server

After your image has been booted successfully, your user interface will appear a green button CONNECT (our system starts charging you at this step). You click it to download the Remote Desktop Connection file.

You will be provided with a .rdp (Remote Desktop Connection) file with credentials to connect to your Windows image on the server, which you can configure as you wish.

Tips: to open .rdp file for Mac OS, you need to download this app

Here you are! You’re in our remote server! You will take full control of it, using it is the same as your own PC. As we suggest, you can install any software you want on the remote server and install ONLY ONE TIME.

Tips: You have to copy the installers (from the X, Z Drive, Download) to the Desktop to install the software. After installing, you should delete the installer to free up space for the C drive and Desktop, so that you save your boot time for the next usage.

To make sure your software license is safe, you should deactivate your license key once you stop using the remote server.

shutdown the remote server

Step 7. Shutdown the remote server

When you have done your work, you need to shut down the remote server. Only when you click the red button SHUTDOWN on our website, does our system stop charging you.

Tips: Please pay attention to your balance and do not let it become negative. Once your balance becomes negative, the remote server will be automatically turned off, which has an effect on your rendered results.

Now you have 2 buttons to shutdown your remote server

  • Button “Shutdown“: you shutdown the remote server as normal
  • Button “Shutdown for clone“: If you need to use multiple servers that have the same software and applications, you will only have to install all of them on one remote server. After installing, you click the button “Shutdown for clone”, then you can see the button “Clone” as shown below

You click the button “Clone“, our system will automatically clone to as many machines as you want.

Our system starts charging you when the user interface appears the button CONNECT and stops charging when you click the red button SHUTDOWN on our website. It means that you will be charged per minute you have used our service.
