Lab update

November 28, 2019 – 10:28 am

So I have decided to go ahead with the “home lab” build. Here’s the components list:

  • Ubiquiti 10GB 16 port switch 
  • 10GB adapter for my QNAP NAS
  • 4 x 1TB Samsung EVO Plus M.2 SSDs (vSAN Data)
  • 2 x 250GB Samsung EVO Plus M.2 SSDs (vSAN Cache)
  • 6 SFP+ DAC cables (2 per host, and 2 for the QNAP)
  • 2x Supermicro motherboard (X11SDV-8C-TP8F)
  • 8x 32GB DDR4 memory modules (128GB per host)
  • 2x Adapter for dual M.2 SSDs (for the 1TB SSDs, the 250GB will be onboard)
  • 2x Fractal Design Define Mini C
  • 2x 32GB Lexar Mini USB key for vSphere installation

I will post the lab design once I am done figuring it out 🙂
