Some documentation of my homelab, mainly for personal reference.

Primary Server

I host many VMs and LXC containers from a custom box; here are the specs:

  • Proxmox virtualization environment, built on Debian Linux
  • Intel Core i7 14700K (twenty cores @ 5.5GHz) 🔥
  • MSI MAG z790 Tomahawk Max Motherboard (Manual)
  • 128GB DDR5 RAM
  • Nvidia GeForce RTX 4060 Ti, 16GB (for ML/LLMs)
  • 2x 2TB SSD/NVMe (mirrored ZFS storage for services)
  • 2x 6TB HDD (mirrored ZFS storage for media files)
  • 500GB NVMe (boot drive)
  • 2 of 4 M.2 slots remaining
  • 5 of 8 SATA ports remaining 😎
  • 2.5 Gbps Ethernet

Secondary Server

Network backups and services run on a Lenovo m720q mini-workstation. It’s a portable NUC-style 1L form factor, very well built and serviceable.

These units are widely available from corporate liquidators for as little as a hundred bucks, and outperform cloud servers costing many hundreds of dollars monthly (particularly given their storage capacity). This model features an Intel i5-8500 six-core processor and 32GB of RAM.
