Hello - I’m working on a project that involves crunching through 3 - 30 second videos and computer vision algorithms to analyze the videos. Currently, I’m using Microsoft Azure’s:
Ubuntu VM Linux Server – 64-bit version 16.04.
Nvidia’s NV 24 core, 224 GB RAM, 1.4 GB temporary storage.
This is pretty expensive (monthly cost of over $3,400) unless I commit to a 1-year or 3-year commitment which reduces it slightly. I’m thinking that it might be less expensive in the long run if I purchased a GPU server. If so, is it possible to install the equivalent NV series on a desktop server? If not, what would be the equivalent or higher GPU that I can install on a desktop server?
I’m new to this area. So, any assistance will be helpful.
