HOME LABS: A DEFINITIVE GUIDE

I created this page to address my blog followers requests for more information around how to start with home labs.  This page is a reflection around home lab considerations and the various home lab generations I have had.  It goes into detail around design considerations, which is something we usually don’t think of when building a home lab. I do hope you find this page very useful. Please feel free to ask any questions or post comments…  Thanks — Enjoy!

    Hello, I’m curious, what sort of VM performance do you get with iSCSI and your FreeNAS server with ESXi

      I am no longer using FreeNAS as its over all performance was weak, I found the communities support unpleasant, and finally the over all product at the time I used it was quite buggy. I spent more time getting it to run vs. using it. Granted my choice of FreeNAS hardware wasn’t perfect but I used what I had. In the end I migrated my FreeNAS box to VMWare VSAN and I could not have been happier — https://vmexplorer.com/2014/08/18/vsan-the-migration-from-freenas-2/
