Questionhigh server config Pin

One of our clients is looking for an on-prem solution for their image-intensive application. This would ideally suit the cloud better but they are adamant about on-prem route. So let them pay.

What's the server config you would recommend for a high intensive graphical workload + insanely big storage. Maybe 0.5 petabytes a week. This involves a high degree of media processing.

--I see this 0.5 PB per week became the focus on the discussion. ROFL. Blush | :O
This could be a fact, I'm not sure in how many locations, how many geographies, in what resolution, etc they would like to capture data. It's up to them. He said the word "Virtually unlimited" and gave an example of 0.5 petabytes a week. So maybe he just pushed the limits to see what hardware architecture we might come up with.

So the whole point of this message is to know if the requirements are extreme, and the client still want to go on-prem, what could be a better suggestion - it could be on the architecture or it could be about an alternate, hybrid solution.


What kinda hardware architecture comes to your mind for this requirement.
Key parameters below, + Please add whatever you feel is key to the on-premises servers, clusters.
- CPU has to be extreme
- virtually unlimited disk space
- Heavy-duty GPU

I still feel like pushing them into the cloud.Unsure | :~
