                                Linus, love the series just because of the pure insanity (and joy) of nerdy experimentation... Can you please redo this with an Epyc 7742 or TR 3990x?

                                If you were deploying this in a production environment, ideally you'd want a minimum of 3 servers for features such as quorate, HA, QoS, live migration, load distribution, & redundancy... Then you'd be well over $100K like you wanted ;) Also, you'd want everything kept locked securely inside the server room (because $30K+ servers will grow legs) and use something like HDBaseT to stream A/V and USB over CAT 6/6a to each editor at near 0 latency. Maybe if some day USB C (with alt mode) over CAT 6a/7/8 becomes a reality, a USB hub at each desk will be all that's needed.

                                To improve performance, have you tried defining shared storage for temporary workspace on the Unraid server itself so that the majority of network traffic stays on the server during editing? Doing so would limit the need to go across the physical network to retrieve data. Something else you should look at is defining the VMs to be NUMA aware so that the hypervisor limits unnecessary memory allocations & vCPU assignments across NUMA boundaries.
