Setting up homelab 3.0

My homelab setup has yo-yo’ed a lot over the years, starting with a small Netgear NAS for backing up family photos, progressing to a HP cube server for learning VMWare when I started hitting limits of the NAS. At it’s peak, my homelab consisted of a pair of HP DL360 G8s running esxi with a rack SAN with 12TB of storage.

After moving from my sysadmin job to a Cloud infrastructure role I started to see less need for running a lab at home so scaled down to the trusty Netgear NAS for “offsite” backups of my cloud servers.
