Little update

   23/02/2020 - 15:33

It's about time for a little update about my infrastructure !

Technologies used



So here's my rack, a lot changed since last time:

I'm now running a VMware infrastructure version 6.5 (6.7 doesn't support my CPUs anymore), here are the specs of the main server :


It also has 4 * 3To disks for storage in raid 5. Mostly dedicated to my Xpenology VM, works great btw.

Everything in my home is driven by this rack, my router is a pfsense virtual machine as this gives me more performance than most of the little boxes available on the market:


Monitoring is done by observium and LibreNMS (librenms sends the alerts directly to my rocket chat).


Battle Station

A lot has changed on my battle station:

I now have 2*27 inch screens on the sides (1080p) and a 32 inch 1440p screen in the middle. The configuration of the Beast has changed some, it now has :

CPU : 
2 x Xeon E5-2690 2.9 GHz (Turbo 3.8Ghz)
RAM : 
64GB ECC 1866Mhz (overclocked)
Motherboard : 
Asrock EP2C602-4L/D16
Graphics card : 
Nvidia GTX 1080 Ti
Hard drives : 
SSD 500GB + 4TB HDD + 2*NVME 1TB
Power supply : 
Antec High Current Pro 1200 Watts
Cooling : 
Full Noctua air cooling


I also tasted the pleasure of 3D printing and I love it:

I now have a Chinese (unbranded) delta printer and a Creality ender 3. 3D printing really begins to become mainstream and is great for DIY and repairs.


That's it for this little update, V to all bikers from my other Beast !

Nouvelle connexion internet !

   6/09/2013 - 16:06

Je suis enfin passé sur Voo pour avoir une connexion un peu plus "convenable". Sachant qu'avant j'étais chez belgacom et que je ne savais avoir plus que 4 Mbit/s en Download et 512 Kbit/s en upload.

Un petit speedtest : 

J'en profite aussi pour vous présenter le nouveau venu dans la famille, un petit switch lynksis/cisco srw2024 (24 ports en 10/100/1000) :

Petit tour au CeBit

Après une petit tour au CeBit en Allemagne grâce à l'organisation du comité TIG, j'ai pu marchander un peu avec des chinois sur place et me procurer une armoire serveur.
