Building a lab server

Written by Ingmar Verheij on April 29th, 2014. Posted in Other

Working in IT means you never stop learning, change is all around. To keep up with developments and to try out new ideas it’s essential to have a lab environment where I can play around with different technologies.

In the past I’d had a lab environment running in the cloud but I felt limited not having direct access to the hardware. While I have no intention to start experimenting with virtual GPU sharing yet, I might in the future. So I decided it was time to invest in a lab server to run at home. Since the server runs physically runs at home it needs to have fairly high wife acceptance factor (WAF). A stylish design, low power, low noise and fairly affordable server is desirable.
