What are your thoughts on running a home lab?
Question that popped into my head today when speaking to a hiring manager.. Would you evaluate someone who runs and maintains a home lab higher or lower than someone who doesn’t?
Personally I do – so maybe I am biased, but I believe it is an awesome too that can set you ahead. I run a VMWare ESXi host on a pair of Lenovo workstations that are redundant. They are set to auto start, and also use a UPS in case of an emergency. Another reason why is that they host all my security cameras (Windows Server using Blue Iris software). I also have a media server that servers as a backup for all my personal photos.
Let me know what you guys think in the comments.
