Pay-per-use licensing

Easily scale to thousands of cores and only pay for what you use, with no license servers or complicated networking required. Just launch virtual machines (VMs) with the applications you need and pay for compute resources and software on demand.

Easy deployment and flexibility

Get started quickly by leaving the plumbing and resource management to Azure Batch. You have full access to your VMs, allowing complete customization of your environment and the ability to troubleshoot any issues. Batch provides a flexible programming model and SDK so you can easily integrate your own pipeline and workflow.

Familiar tools

Use our rich client plugins for industry-standard applications to manage rendering workloads, including submission and monitoring of rendering jobs—without having to learn new tools or applications.

Cloud render with confidence

Azure is committed to the highest levels of trust, transparency, regulatory compliance, and standards conformance, such as MPAA. Deploy on secure infrastructure used by 85 percent of the Fortune 500.

State-of-the art infrastructure

Deploy your rendering workloads on a wide range of VMs, based on your needs and requirements. Deploy best price-performance VMs all the way to high-end accelerated VMs powered by NVIDIA's GPUs.
