    Here is my little humble setup. Not close to yours guys setup but it works.

    mini-itx server on the left. Host Plex, sickbeard, and a few other apps
    HP Micro server(one of the OG NL-34 ones) with 5 1TB drives running freenas
    Netgear N router with wireless disabled
    Surfboard 6120 with a 50/5 TWC connection
    unifi ac lite POE access point

    Slick setup! What are the hardware specs of the mini-ITX server? :D

    It has the following

    Antec mini itx case
    Biostar h61 board
    Pentium dual core no HT
    8gb RAM
    Old Intel og 80gb ssd(no trim) as a boot drive
    500gb 5400 rpm laptop drive for downloads etc..
    Win 7


    It's really basic but gets the job done. Super stable and can handle 2 to 3 plex transcodes if I am not doing all 1080p

    I will probably upgrade to a quad core soon and more memory so I can host a esxi whic will allow me to run some vms like a psense router and a few others. Should be fun

    Looks similar to my humble closet setup. Love the Unifi APs. Why not combine the duties of the mini-ITX and the HP Micro? Doesn't freeNAS allow you to run docker apps? I'm guessing the HP may not have the grunt to run Plex?

    Correct. The micro sever has an old and moblie turion. Transcoding would murder that little system. In the future I want to build an all in one system

    Finally got around to putting in my srx220 at home. Mainly so I can use it as the only switch and have site-site to my colo gear (fronted by a srx240). Not pictured is a UAP. Sadly I have to nat off the VZ router so my set-top boxes will play nice.

    Yeah. Somehow my apartment is a Verizon black hole despite where I live so it helps with reliability on my Note 5. (wifi calling is pretty inconsistent too).

    We started using VOLTE on Verizon now that it's enabled and free. It beats standing very still near certain windows on our house. :p

    I am lucky. No deadzone for me. I think I would shoot myself if I had to provide the bandwidth for my phone to have actual connectivity for cell service :-(

    If you provide the bandwidth for cell service does it count against your minutes and data (in the event that you aren't on WIFI for some reason?)

    What do you guys recommend for a small rack for a home closet? Going to eventually wire my house for Cat5e and put a POE switch 10/100/1000 in there with patch panel. I plan to eventually get the house with security cameras and a DVR unit. So I'd like to have that all mounted in a small neat rack in a closet that can mount on the wall with a door preferably. Also reasonable in price.

    Thanks ahead of time.

    Here's some new stuff I got for my rack. Not all of it will go in as the little boxes will be handed out to family so they can store things on my server from their home for free rather than paying for backup services.

    Dell R720 - ESXI Box
    2 x Xeon E5-2667
    16 x 16GB DDR3 ECC (too much LOL)
    2 x 250GB SSD (when I get them)
    1 x Qlogic 2432 FC HBA 4Gbps

    Dell R710 - FreeNAS box
    1 x Xeon 5504
    4 x 16GB DDR3 ECC (Taking from R720)
    6 x 4TB Drives (when I get them)
    1 x Qlogic 2432 FC HBA 4Gbps

    Certes CEP1000,100,10 VSE (with 100Mb & 50Mb permanent licenses)

    [​IMG]

    All of it was free from work :). Now I just need to find a good rack.

    All of the Certes were brand new out of the box. Took the wrapping off some to plug them in and stuff.

    It has been a while since I've posted. Enjoy!

    Here's my existing weak sauce:

    [​IMG]

    Project "I think I know what I'm doing..."

    [​IMG]

    Basically I'm going to run to the cabinet and make everything all sexy and pretty. Pending power and cabling, oh and coax for cable modem, everything is going to the new MDF for my home... ETC: TBD

    Got the cabinet for $30 bucks, had to pick up in a CL type deal, and the little basket thing was $4 bucks from the local Goodwill.

    If you're curious, in the first pic, shitty UPS in the back, Untangle Appliances NG-25, and an 1810G-24. Also I already have the rack ears for my NG, so things are ready to rock and roll.

    I matched the paint to the wall. That's all the progress so far...

    [​IMG]

    Also organized my keystones and plates in prep for running shit... Still need to order a rackmount keystone thing, and a 1U UPS...

    Dragging ass...

    Not my home network obviously, but this a small portion of what I work with every day. This is the smaller of the two cages in this location.

    Today's progress, got the coax and gear moved to the new rack, wifi gives the house connectivity for now. Most of my clients were wired anyway, so this is better just by way of central MDF placement.

    Today calls for some cleanup and additional wiring of patch cords...

    Me again... Now that I'm hard wired. So hard... I pay for 200/20 BTW.

    802.11n vs. Gigabit Ethernet uplink. You decide which is which... ;)

    Thinking back, the initial migration was less than fun... Now the mini-blips in service for cleanup changes are a breeze.
    - Jacks are now labeled with panel #'s
    - WAP is labeled as WAP, because it's in the hot ass ceiling... It's PoE, so you can see how this might be useful.

    upload_2016-8-28_19-46-21.png

    Garage is fucking hot, it also has live jacks.

    [​IMG]

    Double win, I sold some shit on Craigslist today.

    Did I mention that I have to take the TV off the wall to finish this shit?
    - Update: TV was a no go, too much effort, works fine on wifi...
    - Update 2: Going to discuss a few Ubiquiti cameras and an NVR, as we ran extra cables in the most difficult spot to run cables in this house...
