well, first let me say that I am falling in love with the 2019 Mac Pro. And I have never personally had my hands on one (just via remote over the internet).

But I just found this -
which is a supported card in the 2019 Mac Pro.
You put four 2TB Samsung EVO 970 NVMe's in there, and you will get over 5000 MB/sec bandwidth.
8K will be child's play. The card is under 400 bucks, and each 2TB EVO 970 is about 400 bucks, so for $2000 bucks you get completely insane performance for 8TB of storage - which is not a lot in todays world, but for a special project - even a large project - well, it's amazing.

AND because I have been so tied up with QNAP and Synology shared storage systems, and got so discouraged when Apple screwed up the server product in macOS 10.13 - I kind of forgot about using a Mac as a server. But because of the Sonnet card, I just RE tested file sharing over a network with macOS 10.15.2, and it works great - once again, with no permissions errors with multiple users.

So everything is starting to fall back into place again. This is going to be one crazy NAB show (for the first time in a long time).
