I subscribe to the Home Lab subreddit and see a lot of interesting, fun labs. I am going to be setting up a lab here in the next week or two and am hoping to figure out what I can use all of it for.
I have a 42u rack that I am going to be setting up in the garage as well an ECU to keep things at a manageable temp.
I will be installing the two Dell servers I have had sitting for a while and will more than likely be running a VM farm as well as a shared storage pool for the family.
Next is a Cisco 6509 chassis, Cisco wireless controller, and three to four Cisco AP’s. Not sure what I am going to do with all that capacity but my goal is to set up an enterprise grade network, to help me become more efficient in the Cisco environment, which will hopefully result in become a better Network Admin.
I will update with pictures once I get things set up and cable management in place. Let see you home labs and what you utilize it for. Who knows, maybe your setup will inspire others!
