    Hi all,

    I don't have a lab at the moment, having sold my aging HP kit a while back, but I am considering investing again as I love having a play and breaking things. I wondered if any of you have any home labs and what you're rocking? I've been reading some good articles on VMware labs with Intel NUCs, some 10GB networks on the cheap. Does anyone have a hybrid cloud setup?

    The new NUCs have the 7th gen chips in and look pretty decent, with no fans and low power consumption although like anything, once you have added RAM and SSDs the costs start to mount.

    Cheers
    Jim

    A few dell servers in the 'office' with some Cisco phones also :)

    Set up a hybrid setup with Exchange 2016 and Office 365 over Xmas as I had a big project coming up in the new year for a customer moving away from Exchange 2010. Ended up they went for Office 365 only in the end but it was good to run hybrid setup for a while.
