    Headlines are supposed to be dramatic and only half-truth, right :p After some talk on other threads about power-consumption, AMD, Intel and servers, I thought I'll get some real power numbers on the on-prem servers I usually setup at my customers. Some questioned the power numbers I've been...

    Was about to switch from Intel>Ryzen, but now I'm not so sure after all!

    It was my belief that AMD's newer CPUs was ahead Intel now, and I finally decided to get my first test-server, Asrock board + Ryzen 5 2600 (no GPU) to test it out. My use-case is std. business servers (Linux KVM/QEMU: VPN firewall, Windows AD, Windows RDP VMs, Storage, Web, Mail, FTP and the...

    Alpine Linux as OS-base for hypervisor

    Hi everyone, So obviously Alpine is getting a lot of attention lately since Docker is popular, but it also has a plethora of packages commonly available in larger-footprint distros - namely KVM, libvirt and ZFS. It runs easily from RAM since it's so small, and is also unencumbered by systemd...

    How can I manage KVM in Windows?

    Hi, I am experimenting with a KVM machine I put together using Alpine 3.6.2 with ZFS, and I was wondering if anyone has any ideas how I can manage it from a Windows laptop? I tried to install virt-viewer MSI, but the installer just exits after clicking the first 'next'. Can anyone suggest...

    Advice on low power home server

APC SmartUPS 1500 (bought used, probably over sized for the task, noisy when the fans runs every now and then. Efficiency? I have...

    Planning a multiseat, virtualized workstation

    With AMD's Zen around the corner, I am getting ideas about what I might do with a crazy number of CPU cores. I am looking to build a computer for use as a multi-seat workstation. I would like to have my host be some very stripped down OS (as close to "bare metal" as possible), and exclusively do...
