Home Lab Beginners guide. Check out this course to learn how I built a cool 12U rack at home. Learn how to choose a proper rack, run all the cables, get the best cable organizers, install additional fans and LED lights. Want to learn a bit more about UPS and power? I will show you what UPS I bought, installed, and configured.
This is not just about hardware. I show you my network diagram, a quick overview of pfSense (open source firewall), and a cool monitoring system called PRTG that I display using an old iPAD.
