You can get nice gears on ebay for this price and do your home work on
hardware similar to your production setup


At least, that's what I'm doing for years...

Hope it helps

PS: If you're really doing this @home, prefer 3U+ servers or you'll blow
WAF at the very second you power it up... been there ;-)

> Internal 10GB Ethernet PCI Card - Intel X540-T2
> 64 GB SSD Drive for Proxmox Boot System
> 1TB X 3 LUNS ISCSI Drive exported from my storage array (1 for each
