Personally I’m starting to get into the realm of a mini data center. I’m lucky enough to live in a place that I have access to FiOS business class at a good price.
I’m just enjoying having access to things and never really knowing if google is down or some other crap is going on. I have a lot of tweaking to get things more autonomous, but otherwise, it is very fun. The best part is that other companies have much less data on me.
As for hardware, I’m running:
|Custom||HP Z400||HP Mini Tower||Power||Networking|
|Xeon E3-1220 v5 @ 3.00GHz||Xeon W3520 @ 2.67GHz||Intel i3-6100T @ 3.20GHz||2x 1500VA battery backups||Ubiquiti Edgemax 4|
|16GB Ram||24GB Ram||8GB Ram||Auto switching dual input PDU||24 port edgeswitch|
|8 Hot Swap HDD bays (4x 1TB WD-Greens)||2x 1TB WD-Blacks||2TB WD-Red||About 45 minutes battery time|
I’ve been really getting sucked into the hosted services, too:
|Custom||HP Z400||HP Mini Tower||Raspberry Pi 3|
|FreeNAS||Debian 10||Debian 11||HomeAssistant|
|Main Data Storage (ZFS)||Static Websites||Jellyfin||Z-Wave & ZigBee|
|Nextcloud on Debian 9||MailCow|
|Discourse (unused ATM)|
