My New HomeLab
– 8 GB HyperX DDR3 ram for now
(another 8GB on its way) Another 8GB has been ordered, bringing me up to 16gb. I’ll be upping the available ram for my Kali install and upgrading my windows 8 to windows 10!
– 16GB usb drive for esxi
– 120GB mSata SSD for local storage
– Gigabyte ethernet
– I run vmware esxi 5.5 on this machine and run a couple of vm’s on it (and storing lots of vm images on my NAS, I dont need 10 vm’s running 24/7 – this is a homelab, not production, stuff will go on when I need it, and ill power them down when I’m done). Currently I have a win8 vm, a centos VM running php, mysql and apache, which is used for general playing with wordpress, etc and a kali linux VM.
