I got my first computer when I was still in elementary school. I spent many hours on that machine and I have been hooked on computers since. Over the years, I’ve had some form of a homelab, even when I was floating in the middle of the ocean. It’s been as small as a single Intel based mini-PC to as large as seven Dell PowerEdge 2950 servers1. Below is the current revision of my homelab.

  1. These all came with a 48U rack that I got around 2014. The rack is all I really wanted. I did run a couple of these for a while, and even booted them all up at the same time every so often. They quickly got replaced when I realized how expensive they are to run. ↩︎

  2. This is a mix of 8, 10, 12, and 20TB drives. ↩︎

  3. June 25 2024: These drives are due for replacement, as they have over 113,000 power-on hours each (~13 years). I’m kind of wanting to see how long they’ll last. ↩︎

  4. I am thinking about moving these to Docker containers. ↩︎ ↩︎

  5. I tried these in Docker containers and had nothing but headaches. They’ve both been running on this VM for about 5 years now without an issue. ↩︎
