Configuration Snippets & Troubleshooting
Homelab Ideas & Future Plans
This is my main server machine. It's three times more powerful than the HPE Proliant tower it replaced, while using far less power and creating far less noise. It runs most of the applications on the network, such as this Wiki, UNMS, GitLab and Plex.
|RAM||20GB (4 + 8 + 8)|
|OS||Proxmox VE on Debian|
|SSD||250GB Samsung 850 EVO|
|HDD||500GB Toshiba DT01ACA050|
With (2) 2TB WD Blacks in RAID 0. Plex media and other data is stored here. Backups are taken regularly to a local HDD and anything important also lives in the cloud.
My Pi 3B acts as a reverse proxy using NGINX (you're accessing this Wiki through it!). It also serves as a general miscellaneous web server for many sites that don't necessarily need guranteed uptime.
My Pi 0 runs AdGuardHome to block ads/tracking across the network by acting as a DNS server.
Cheaper than the UniFi alternatives and can be powered over PoE. At some point this will be replaced with a UniFi/Mikrotik solution
Very overkill for this setup but it integrates with UNMS along with the EdgeRouter and means I won't run out of ports anytime soon. If I switched to a UniFi router then this would be downgraded to a smaller UniFi PoE switch.
