Back in Early 2020, we tried to deploy a new version of our all NVMe video editing server dubbed "New Whonnock". It was a complete disaster due to what appeared to be a design flaw with the storage drives we purchased for it. This time around, we've built a new PCIe Gen 4 NVMe server from the ground up with the help of Liqid, Sabrent, Micron, AMD,, and Infinite Cables - let's just hope it actually works this time.
Check out Liqid's Element LQD4500 Honey Badger:

Clearly the three servers should be called Onennock, Duonnock, and Tronnock

So how can I get a recommended config/parts list for a single PC video editor (Premiere Pro CS5)? My current I7/16Gb setup takes hours to render 1 minute.

What's the reason (except for backwards compatibility) that new server stuff still uses (only/mostly only?) VGA? Less bandwidth? More reliable? I mean, shouldn't it get harder and harder to get new screens with VGA? And if there are still new ones getting made (or older one's still getting manufactured) aren't they (the screens) soon (unless it's already been that way for a while) going to just get more expensive while being worse than anything you can get for e.g. 50 bucks (except maybe bandwidth wise)?

I'd actually like to see a vid on how your workflow works for editing etc... especially since there multiple people working on the same project... do you partition the work?

Linus should have named it Whonnock 1.2 Gen 2 x 2 to make the confusion even worse.
picabolo93 10 kun oldin
I thought SSDs wear very close to one another due to wear leveling, so when the first SSD fails the others will probably start failing soon after. Backups will not help with uptime then!

It’s incredible how much better your cameras and/or camera operators have gotten over the past year. Their focus pulls are noticeably better in this video than a video from last year.

Nightmare will come when you tried to replace one faulty SSD, then you'll realize the whole server need to shut down before you can unplug the card and actually change it. Oh, the card can't even locate the faulty SSD. Be warned.
licson0729 16 kun oldin
In one of your previous video, you were using U.2 SSDs which makes the above problem non-existent.

Then everyone who works in any kind of enterprise support is just like, "oh, those. Neat." I've been working around 25/100Gb switches for quite a while now. Usually the local side is still 25Gb, since it's been difficult to squeeze multiple 100Gb ports into PCIe 3.0, but still.

You carelessly flailing multi-thousand-dollar components around, and running at full speed with a multi-tens-of-thousands-of-dollars server is not funny, it's not entertaining, it's only cringey. Do you really love so much to break thousands of dollars worth of electronics just to have to spend that much money again to get replacements? Are you completely incapable of grasping the concept of handling expensive parts carefully and safely? Be grateful that _this_ time nothing dropped on the floor. But when you keep acting like this, something eventually will. But I suppose you have the money to waste.

If you are looking for a less sketchy multi threaded copy program - RichCopy. Its was developed internally by MS. Its a GUI for RoboCopy (by screenshots, it appears the app you used also is). Used to use it all the time in a professional capacity when I needed to copy large databases (multi gigabyte).
