Hardware for home lab
After trying to decide on the hardware specifications for my home lab i have decided to go with the HP Z800. There are a many reasons to go with this platform, including that i have 34GB of ECC ram that i have lying at home. Plus is hits the WAF on the head (Wife acceptance factor) http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wife_acceptance_factor.
The Workstation will have 2x Quad Core Xeons, 32GB of RAM and 1x 400GB SSD and 5x 1TB SATAs,. Plenty of compute power to run 99% of my labs
I have drafted a rough layout how i plan to deploy the hardware and hypervisors
