            If you decide to try something like this again, it might be fun to try this with Windows Multipoint Services to remove the overhead of using VMs. You won't be able to compartmentalize the resources in the same way as you can with VMs, where you can allocate specific resources to each VM, but it might be more efficient overall, allowing demanding processes to be allocated resources as needed.

                          This could probably work in real life cuz the chances that ALL the editors are going ham at once is not likely so while 1 person is sucking major performance there is likely to be another or others who are either not even editing or not using very powerful applications so the 1st guy using heavy load actually has more power routes to him than he would have from a dedicated tower for himself

                                                                I really love this stuff, but guys, really really bad design. If anything goes wrong with that motherboard you've knocked out all your workers until you get a replacement and I bet you don't have maintenance on that thing.

                                                                Better solution would have been to divide all that hardware into 4 separate nodes in a cluster (for 100k, you may be able to get nvidia's RTX blades with maintenance) that way if one goes down, you've only knocked out 2 of your workers. I think you can even virtualize GPU's now (Maybe a video idea) so you could just move the VM's to other nodes in the cluster and just have minor degraded performance until you get a replacement. You can't scale this either to add more users.

                                                                But in saying that, this is what gets the clicks, and if you don't get the clicks, there is no video editing to do, and you wouldn't be able to make than pretty awesome rig which isn't a production rig anyway. Have you tried VMWare's ESXi as the hypervisor? Would be cool to see hyper-v vs KVM vs ESXi on that thing.
