Since restructuring the website Hotmodz.net several times I have been working with this fascinating program from Realmac Software called Rapid Weaver. Between building the website with a more user friendly design and training for more Cisco certs. It was nice to have some downtime to add/remove hardware to my home lab environment. As seen in the picture below, the Dell PowerEdge 4220 was purchased at a local reseller earlier in the year to help expand my equipment and organization in my home. Having this 42u rack is really going to spruce up the “Home Wan”.
I have several reasons for having a Home Datacenter those being that my family use an enormous amount of data at least that’s what I think... I think the total amount my family uses is around 600GB out of the 1TB drive for all of their redirect documents, photos, videos, etc... That storage is running off a local machine that I unfortunately don’t have replicated or backed up yet but I do have the drive in a raid 1 configuration. The other reason being is that I use this to help further my knowledge in several different technologies for work/fun. I have several virtual machines running in my ESXi sever. That being said here’s the list
I know this was short and probably here and there with some left out information but I will have the following year to blog about my environment and wan. Please leave any suggestions in the comment section below, e-mail via the contact form or post in the forum.
Let’s all have a great 2017!
