I have 7 computers working non stop, spread through the house. I'll keep an eye here as it's interesting for me as well :D
@selea Homelab #1 by night. Switches on the back, naturally.
@selea I'm getting a new rack and a bunch of servers next weekend so it may look different after that... :)
I love how it looks like a bunker!
And nice! Any particular cool servers?
@selea It's like a bunker. Concrete floor, stone walls and stone roof. Back then I had two supermicro servers (dual xeon, 128GB RAM each), a 16 drive FC SAN with 1TB drives, FC switch, 48 port gigabit switch (HP), and some@other stuff. Now I habe one of the Supermicro servers left but not in use. I currently got two Dell R620 with dual (newer) Xeons, 192GB RAM each. I also have a QNAP NAS with eight 2TB drives, a home built FreeNAS box with 8 4TB drives and three SSD's connected.
@selea The FreeNAS box is connected via 10GbE. I also have a HP Microserver with four 2TB drives running FreeNAS hosting backups. It's in another building on my property. Also have a fairly modern Fujitsu server with dual XEONS and 128GB RAM that I don't use at the moment. Dual Edgerouters 8-R for interwebz and various switches from HP and Cisco around the property. Unifi for wifi. Think that's about it. I have run fiber between the buildings on my property because why not.
@selea It's all a bit overkill, I know. I have gotten most if not all of my stuff for free.
@selea I wouldn't mind trading some Xeon stuff for a MicroVAX or an AlphaServer to run VMS on.
@selea a compact homelab / work area here, that has to fit in the home office / guest room. Descriptions in captions.
Nice and clean!
What kind of screen do you have to the far left?
@selea I could maybe post some pictures that serve as a cautionary tale against the dangers of computer hoarding.
Mine's more of a labgore! :). Works for now!
I guess for this you'd need a special plan with your ISP for fast upload and a static IP? I've been wondering about the possibility of running servers from home recently but have no idea where I would start.
Well, I have 250/250 but dynamic IP. The dynamic IP is solved by having Dynamic DNS with linux.pizza freedns service running and PowerDNS ALIAS records on the same environment.
Oh cool. I forgot you could do dynamic dns
@selea Here you go :)
Tho the main server (A Dell PE2950) is in the heaterroom for ehm... _obvious reasons_...
This is just the NAS
@selea oh right, it's a tad bit outdated the pic as well.
Removed the black switch on top and moved the white one all the way to the top of the rack
