I'm sending .blend files to a new render farm that has dedicated machines that have never run blender before. What machine specs are required, and what software do I need to make sure is present?

Since you are running a "Render Farm," you do not need the monitors, mice, or graphics tablets.

I would recommend buying good graphics cards for your nodes, as GPUs seem to increase render speed by quite a lot.


All you need is linux, windows, or MacOS and blender (https://www.blender.org/)
