...fresh from the Toadstool.
Slowly transitioning to some improvements - hope to get some Ubiquity stuff for my main backhaul and wifi...

Prime day was good with the DS920 and I got 4x 12TB WD element drives that I shucked - way cheaper and now I have a shitload of storage...

The cable modem is for my 1GbE down /40mbps up Xfinity service. The Asus RT-AC87U is the main router and a RT68U at the other end of the house via tp-link powerline network

The white box is a custom 3D printed case for 7 NUC boards setup with Kubernetes as a cluster for now. Running 7-8 Docker containers on the Synology as well.

Next steps are a Hades Canyon NUC with 32gb ram to run ESXi 7 and move some heavier VMs for the ubiquity upgrade...

At least having fun during Covid

I know - everyone wants details - I can’t find the pics of the internals but the design is on instructables for a 2-3node setup - just extend to fit the # of boards

.. but why? what all is running? have you looked into podman?

Pihole, grafana, telegram, home-assistant, influxdb, ubiquiti command, and more

I’ll setup pfsense as a vm on the bigger NUC prior to feeding the ubiquiti setup

Still wanting a udmPro to have a solid monitoring platform, but probably overkill if I have the pfsense setup

Excellent router. Are you running Skynet + Diversion? You should be. :bigthumb:

I, too, am curious about your PowerLine experience. We had one in our last place and anything going through that connection would only get about 95Mbps on Speedtest.net; otherwise we got about 200.

Interested to hear more about your Docker & PFSense plans.
