A great artist must have a great rehearsal place, so a good IT engineer must have a great testing lab.
So, some years ago I decided to invest in a Home-Lab and as of today, It is still giving me great results when I want to try any of my projects.
My Lab is 100% done with second-hand material that I have eventually found on sites like eBay at great prices:
- 1 Server Cisco UCS C250 M2 / ESXi 6.7 – Intel Xeon 5650 – 3x300GBs HDDs – 128GB RAM
- 1 Switch Cisco Catalyst 2960
- 1 Router Cisco 2811
- 1 Router Cisco 3825
