Hey guys! Starting to spec out gear for a home lab, and I have quite a bit of stuff (switches, UPS, software), but one crucial thing is missing, the compute!
Came across a deal with the above specs for $199 each, thinking of picking up 2-3 of these, wanted to know your thoughts on this for a vSphere lab.
Primary load will be a DNS/DHCP server and a virtual WAN appliance of some sort (pfSense, VyOS, etc). Would love to run NSX to improve familiarity, as well as some sort of GNS3/Eve-NG Network emulator.
What’re your thoughts on this platform?
As the title says. Driver for this is the cost hiring others, if I can learn to frame in a wall, patch drywall, put up crown molding, replace the shutoff valves, minor things, etc, on my own I feel like I’d take more pride in the house.
