I often get the question
– What kind of stuff do you have to runt labs, tests and play with?
I have a understanding wife and a very generous CEO, so here it is…
In my back pack:
1 x HP Studio G3 with 32 GB ram and 2 x 1TB NVME drives
1 x Microsoft Surface Pro 4
The Surface works as my “office” machine, it also runs Insider Preview (fast) and the HP Studio is my LAB/Demo/Dev machine. It runs Windows Server 2016 and contains about 100-150 VM’s
I have one full rack and one half rack, the half rack contains 6 HP Micro Server Gen 8, used as test/dev machines, the full rack runs 2 HP ML 350 Gen 8, they run Azure Stack as well Azure Pack in a full Fabric based on HCI and the entire System Center stack
I also have a Pelican Case (Yellow) that runs a bunch of Intel NUC’s devices
You have a very nice home lab there! Any hardware updates happened?
