MaxCloudOn’s Frequently Asked Questions:

What Is MaxCloudON?

MaxCloudON is an Infrastructure as a service (Iaas) provider. With us you can rent VPS/VDS and you can use them in any way related to processor computing. We are also the owners of Rend-it and very soon we will incorporate their services into ours.
Why are you different from any other cloud provider?

As our main line of work was to perform render farm services for the past decade, all our infrastructure (both hardware and housing) has been designed to sustain heavy loads of computing and large amounts of electricity/heat and we have decided to stay there. As a cloud provider we are not worrying that our customer’s line of work will generate high CPU usage and will generate lots of external issues (heat, electricity, hardware breakdown) – on the contrary, we embrace these problems and solve them – so you won’t need to.
How Does It Work?

We have made short YouTube instruction video to show you how easy it is. You can see it here.
How can I test your service?

To every newly registered and verified user, we offer 48 hours free trial to a virtual server with 16 cores and 32 GB RAM. If this time is not sufficient, we can extend this trial period on demand. Normally, this time is used so you can install and configure the software you need for further rendering and cloning of your image.
You can register and test our service here.
What are Your Hardware Specifications?

At the time of writing this, we have 4 different setups: servers with dual Xeon E5-2660 processors, servers with dual Xeon E5-2665 processors, servers with Xeon E5-2660v2, and servers with AMD Epyc 7702 processors. By default, all are equipped with 64GB Nvme ssd,  but depending on your needs, we can either increase or decrease that. This will change your pricing of course so, if you need other memory configuration or want to reduce pricing by lowering the memory we can do such adjustments, after additional negotiation and under specific terms. If you need other memory configurations – please contact us.
Is My Work Secure With You?

Security is our top priority. We provide you access to your server via IKEv2/IPSec encrypted VPN channel, which guarantees that you’ll be the only one who can access them and by default internet access from our servers is disabled, by state of the art firewall. On request, a list of domains/IPs are allowed for the specified account.
How Much Does It Cost?

All our available servers and their pricing are described on our Intel and AMD price pages. If you need a hardware setup different than the one we have – please don’t hesitate to contact us.
How Much Storage You Provide?

Each server will have 60GB SSD of system drive, but if you rent 6 servers and above for network renders, we can provide access to 100GB SSD network storage. Below this number, we can still provide you with a network storage but for a fee.
How Can I Create My VPN Connection?

By using our MaxCloudON Sync Manager, navigate to “Settings” page then press “Create VPN” button and our manager will take care of the rest.

* MaxCloudON Sync Manager requires Windows 10 x64 to work properly

Is Your Network Free?

Our network connectivity is free. We don’t measure or charge internet traffic.
What is BYOL?

Bring Your Own License (BYOL) – is a licensing model that lets users/companies use their licenses flexibly. It doesn’t matter if it’s on your own PC on-premise or within the cloud.

The key differences about BYOL are:

Greater flexibility: With true license mobility, businesses are ready to migrate to and from services with ease – without having to stress about managing multiple licenses for the identical product across multiple platforms and services.

Reduction/Removal of Upfront Cost: When upscaling the use of software, having the ability to share and migrate your license means saving huge costs upfront. Using licenses across multiple services can increase expenses by a large margin.

Increased Freedom of Use: Within the license terms, businesses have the freedom they deserve to use the software as they need.

Why BYOL is built differently?

The issue with many traditional software licenses is their restrictive policies. A license, often, is tied to a selected server or to a selected kind of server (e.g. on-premise), so it can’t be re-used when deployments happen within the cloud without violating the contract.

BYOL licenses let users allocate their licenses more flexibly; e.g. on an actual physical server (the dedicated host) with containers or multiple virtual machines. The user can then target and reuse specific physical servers while staying within the confines of their existing software licenses.
