Hi friends,

 

Which is the best server model for the home lab? I believe all devices can make it as virtual except 2Xasa, Ap, IP phone.

 

Thanks

 

Except AP and IP Phone.

Hi,

 

Can you share the server model which is compatible with all virtual and VM.

Thanks

 

Its not about "Server model". First decide what exactly you wish to run on your server. For example, CCIE security track studies (say you want to run full Security Topology) will require a machine that has atleast 16-20 Cores, 64 GB ram and 1 TB storage. Most importantly the processor must have features like VT-x and EPT.

 

Now either you can search for pre-built server with similar specs or build your own with similar components.

For those reading this that don't have the 10 plus years of building pc/server hardware, networking and security experience...

 

It would be faster (and faster means more expensive) to buy a ready-made pre-built server that someone else built for you.

... but where's the fun in that?

 

There's a vendor on eBay that sells the following:

A Cisco CCIE Security v5.0 Virtual Lab kit based on INE's recommendations.

It's built using a quiet Dell R610 Server w/ 128GB RAM (can upgraded to 192GB) + 1TB SSD HD with VMware ESXi 6.0

This Dell R610 includes 2 x Hex Core Processors (12 Cores total).

 

...but I'm not giving the direct link because I am using the above as a further example of Mr. Robot's post

 

 

Now I'm going back to doing CCIE Security labs and listening to John Denver albums.
