Show us ya.......... home server setup.
!!!Rules for posting images in this thread!!!

Images must be uploaded onto an image hosting site i.e. Postimage and then link posted here (use the image button in the WYSIWYG editor) (this stops for example, forum migration to another software and losing all of your really cool server pictures).

Also an explanation of what you have in it would be fantastic.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

So here's mine.
I'll first explain a little bit about my set up.
I'm a demolition worker by day and find things lying around building sites before we destroy them, and I found the cabinet (this used to hold the sound system) at an old picture theater and bought it off the owner for $30NZD.

The door is from a patch panel cabinet which I've adapted to fit my server cabinet.

I was given 6 Digitus UPSes from an old employer and have 4 for now running in my set up, he also gave me 5 Shuttle PC's (2 of which reside in my network, 1 pictured and the other in my sitting room running http://www.zentyal.org/ as my network controller).

I've also got a Cisco Full Duplex 24 port switch, and am looking at buying a Cisco router to add to the mix.

For my main server I'm running a Dell Optiplex 745, running a 3.4ghz core 2 duo processor and 4GB ram (it supports up to 8GB), and it's fitted with an 80GB SATA HDD. I'm looking at buying 3 - 4 more of these ready for Sentora II's Cloud & Multi Server Capabilities. The entire setup is connected through a 4 port KVM switch. As it sits now my set up is around 90% finished and is still a work in progress. All of this is set up in a walk in wardrobe at my place.

The entire set up so far owes me around the $200NZD mark.

Sweet! - I couldn't tell if your router was the thing in the bottom left hand corner Smile - Yep, I've used PFSense (and FreeBSD for that matter) before, its awesome... BSD FTW!!

RE: Show us ya.......... home server setup.
You no longer running your hosting company buddy? or you mean that's the only PC/server you have in your home/office (not including datacentre(s))?

I'm currently running an i7 32GB RAM ESXi bad-boy chassis but about to switch it over to a HP microserver with 16GB of RAM, the i7 seems massive overkill for a few VM's and I'll save a killing on power lol... The i7 will then become my new Linux development machine which will sit next to my i5 gaming rig Smile

I'll take some photo's soon and will post them up here Smile

Apart from that my production servers all live in the cloud now (Digital Ocean)!
