For the record I don't have 24 M.2 NVMe disks, but I do have 12 spread across three AICs not including the 2 onboard. I am currently testing TrueNAS Scale same board Epyc Milan 7B13 64core CPU 512GB RAM. Just setting it up...plan on testing this weekend.
Thanks for the replys. After I reviewed this I think i'm gonna go a different route. You're right, 512GB is probably overkill and tbh, I'm dreaming whenn it comes to power/efficiency and my expectations from a single source. I think what I will do is keep the NAS for maybe 2-3 more years as...
Hi folks. I am planning the next iteration of the home lab and here's what i'm thinking.
Right now, I have 5 x XeonD Second Gen 1u systems and a Xeon D based QNAP NAS.
As for connectivity it's built on a Ubiquiti foundation:
Dream Machine Special Edition
XG-24 10GbE Switch

Changing things up a bit. I was going to add another Xeon D node but after rethinking it I do need a beefy system for some nested testing and other things so i've changed the post.
Hi folks, i'm looking to add one more node to my lab and i'm looking to build my first Epyc System:
I'm starting to reach memory limitaions in my lab with 3 x 128GB Nodes and since i'm on Xeon D 2x platform my only option is to move to 64GB DIMMS as the next logical step. I'm looking for 12 x 64GB DIMMS ECC REGISTERED DDR4 MODEL: MEM-DR464MC-ER29 or MEM-DR464MC-ER32
Please let me know what...
I have a QNAP TS1685 w/Xeon-D 1521 CPU w/128GB ECC DDR4 2133 RAM and has served me well but i'm running out of capacity and am moving to full on Google NVR Cloud storage so I decided this could be a good opportunity to upgrade some other things besides just my HDD tier.
Use cases right now are...
Hi all..been a while. Hope you are all doing well.
I'm in the process of upgrading and rebuilding my lab and want to use this opportunity to upgrade my storage capacity.
Thought i'd stop in here before I go to ebay.
I'm looking for 6 x Samsung PM883 1.92TB SSDs. They have to have Samsung...
Title says it all folks. I specifically need 1.17 firmware for my X11SDV-8C-TP8F. Since Supermicro has basically removed FTP access to older firmware i'm SOL.
Please PM me if you have a copy of the bits.
Hi folks. My loss, your gain. I ordered another server for my home lab and realized when I got it was the 4 Core/8 Thread version of the CPU instead of the 8 cores I needed.
Awesome board, new system pull replacing with 8 core model. This would be great for small form factor NAS, K8s, Virtual...
