    The Fusion IO cards cost probably more than most people rigs. When I was still the main VMware guy in a hosting company I had a similar lab in the datacenter. A lot more Convinient but as it wasn't my kit ........ icon_sad.gif

    That is ridiculous, but sometimes it's the cost of trying to be good at the job. Definitely a great sys admin and hypervisor test bed.

    He could definitely use it for consulting.

    He is a consultant and he's also the owner of the company. He just happens to have his lab at home.

    I'm pretty sure if I installed a rack like that my wife would be filing the divorce papers before I could power it on icon_wink.gif
  • cyberguyprcyberguypr Senior Member Posts: 6,590Mod Mod
    What would her issue be? Money? Noise? Aesthetics? Just trying to understand others' situation as my better half is fully supportive of my career madness.
  • NightShade03NightShade03 Posts: 1,383Member
    Noise and Aesthetics....we live in 1000 sq ft apt at the moment....might take a little bit of room hehe

    If I had a house where I could store racks in the basement where you didn't need to hear it or have it creating tons of heat she wouldn't care.

    Noise would be my primary concern, plus I don't really need all that stuff would be the second lol.

    I'm willing to bet his power bill went up quite a bit after installing that!

    Definitely a nice little office heater he has built.
