I am late to the party, but I am happy to see that someone at least asked that question.
Large quantities of servers from an unknown customer without mentioning the use case always is subject to scrutiny.
When we get these requirements, we ask for 6 months upfront for that kind of usage.
Even so, that price isn’t doable. If a provider goes fully consumer grade, it is still not doable unless, of course, everyone here pretty much knows what.
