An observation - 1st person that has listed Adguard. Most other lists in this thread have Pihole. Yesterday was tossing up whether to install either.

 

Is there a reason people prefer Pihole over Adguard?

If you look further afield than the main players, there are quite a few inexpensive options.

 

This is a one man band, but I've been quite impressed with what he (Scott) has built...

Basically, $US10 per year, fair use.

I did a quick research years ago before installing it and for some reason, what I've read geared me towards Adguard Home than Pihole. 

 

Currently, Adguard just works for my need. I will probably try Pihole one of these days.

I actually messed up and forgot to add in my LXC's. I run Adguard as well (will update my original post). 

I run both PiHole & Adguard with PiHole being the primary DNS and Adguard the secondary. 
I don't remember why I took this approach. 

It seems to work well though!

Hahaha apologies. Truthfully it was to get more of an idea of how others are running their homelabs. 

Mission accomplished I rekon

Zoho is AUD$18 a year per user. Aliases are free. It's not a big cost for completely reliable email.

This is my recently built home private cloud infrastructure. A 3 node hyper-converged OpenStack/Ceph cluster with 10G-ring network.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Each node is the same, but detail is only shown for one. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I'm up around 30 VMs so far but I think I need to branch more into containers because VMs are a bit heavy for a lot of my work loads. 

 

I'm using Terraform for Infrastructure as Code against OpenStack and Ansible for deployment automation. 

 

Each Node

 

  • Hp Elitedesk G5 Small Form Factor
  • Intel i7-9700 (8 Cores)
  • 64GB DDR4 (Expandable to 128GB)
  • Broadcom Quad 1G NIC
  • Intel X520 Dual 10G NIC (SFP+)
  • 256GB SATA SSD (OS)
  • 2TB Samsung 980 Pro NVME (Ceph OSD)
  • 2TB Samsung 870 EVO SATA (Ceph OSD)
  • 1 spare SATA and 1 Spare NVME for expansion

Where did you get that Vent in the drawer? I for the life of me have been unable to find any for my comms cupboard. 

Super jealous your setup looks great!

Cheers! Vent 500x80mm from Ali express:

 

Vents Perforated Sheet Aluminum Alloy Air Vent Perforated Sheet Web Plate Ventilation Grille Vents Perforated Sheet (aliexpress.com)

 

~$14NZD landed. Unbelievably, it arrived straight and in perfect condition. And better quality than I expected. 

 

Also got some aircon filter material and a friend laser cut me some acrylic filter frames that sit behind the vent.

After some thought on monitoring - and since I already use New Relic for Geekzone, I've decided to find a way to monitor the Synology NAS - following these instructions: Easily and free monitoring Synology using New Relic Infrastructure and Docker : r/synology (reddit.com)
