So we bought a new house — now to disassemble everything and prepare to move!
First everything has to come down, to make the home office presentable on the sales photos and during the open house.
To make the move easier I am making several changes to my homelab and its services. Also — there is no fiber available in the new house, so I have to rethink what services to host at home… 😟
Services I can not do without are moved to a VPS:
- Logistics system
- Paste service (xpb)
A few things have been turned off or disabled:
- Unbound DNS server, using dnsmasq on the Edgerouter instead
- CCTV server, all cameras have been taken down anyways
All LXC containers on Alpha have been moved to Epsilon, Alpha will be shut down for now and probably be used as my desktop computer or a dedicated media server in the future. I’m thinking Epsilon will be easier to get back up in the new house, since it has a small form factor. Also; the load is pretty light without the CCTV server.
- Main hypervisor
- Intel Core i7-7700K @ 4.2GHz, 48GB RAM
- Backup hypervisor
- Dell Optiplex 9010 SFF
- Intel Core i5-3470 @ 3.2GHz, 16GB
So what does my future home office look like? It’s a 3.1×3.2 meter room in the basement of the new house. With thick concrete walls, and no windows. Your typical basement storage room. But I am going to transform it 😄
Update June 4th: We are moving the home office and homelab today! 😄
