Hey all,

I'm curious what other NANOGers have in their home compute centers? On
the extreme end of course we have mr morris :)
with his uber lab: http://smorris.uber-geek.net/lab.htm

I've got the following:

Production rack (4 post AV rack)

 From top down:
Current primary internet connection, soon to be out of band internet
connection (Wimax from Clearwire)
Ubiquity Networks Nanostation2 based AP (MeshPotato via the VillageTelco
project)<<  serving up 3 SSID (bridge to main vlan, guest, honeypot)
Linksys WRT54G T-mobile version<<  not doing anything at the moment

3 dell optiplex 745s

PFSense router (WAN to clearwire, LAN to Cisco 3550)
AlientVault server (amazing software package)
Proxmox server (another great software package)

I have also considered turning all 3 machines into Proxmox boxes and run
everything in a virtual machine. I like the Dell Optiplex machines, they
sip power.

APC UPS (considering a rack mount UPS and will probably buy one this
weekend from the local Goodwill computer works store)
PS3<<  gotta get my parallel hacking on
Avocent Cyclades PDU (unused currently as my apartment wiring won't
support it)
Cisco 3550 Distribution Switch
Cisco 2950 Access Switch
Dell PowerEge 1800
Dell PowerEdge 2800

I've got a network lab rack (skeletek) as well. This hosts a 6509 and
other fun things (cisco routers/switches). Pretty sure I can do any
CCNA/CCNP/CCIE(R&S) lab scenario).

So what's in NANOGers home networks/compute centers? :)

I have one rack of stuff..:)
I have three 3500 series switches. Then an hp 1005 on a shelf. I then have my tower(custom build) and ups on another shelf. Behind the computer is my 8 port gigabit switch. The 3500 are not in use at the moment. I have a dell sc420 running astaro and a dell t110 running server 2k8 r2 standard. The other network consists of my "sick computer area" and my sprint airave. I utilize the airave's built in switch to provide connectivity to sick computers. Nothing hugely special but it fits into one rack with the sick computer area on a small table next to it..:)
