Probably just got the format wrong, the stuff to hide has to go somewhere between the tags. You don't need two spoilers.

This server is not complete as it is missing the 5x WD Red 3TB Drives in a RAID1E. I will be installing them soon inside a ICY Dock 5Bay Cage that will sit in the 3 5.25in Bays.

Little question: why you choose CPU Fan air flow orientation "from back to rear" instead common "from rear to back"?

Great Question! I had to turn the heatsink/fan assembly 180degrees due to the position of the hard drive. No this would have blown air to the front of the case but i also flipped the fan so all fans and airflow are front front to rear. thumb.gif

Very interesting solution thumb.gif
Anyway, I think those rackmount cases is not perfect (own 2 2U from iStar, same as yours) because very short and no space for cpu fan and disk drives, especially in combination with server-grade motherboards from Supermicro. Also PSU location on the right side require very long PSU cables and adapters ATX 24 pin plus CPU 8 pin for motherboard. Looks like Star engineers hate computer enthusiasts rolleyes.gif

The only real purpose for these shallow rack mount cases is for the 2post rack users out there. Like me for our office we only have a 20U wall mounted swing out rack that is only 18in deep. Any server chassis that is deeper needs to have rails and a 4 post rack. I install servers on the daily for work. I just setup a 4U Geovision NVR Server for a warehouse with about 64 IPcam, 16x3TB WD Purple drives and Quad intel NICs.

I think it's time for me to finally share my full home data center setup as it stands now. I have been piecing this cluster together for a while now, mostly with things that fall in to my lap that have been removed from production to cycle in new servers as well as I have 5 iomega ix4-200D NAS' that I got for free as they would no longer boot. The Synology DS212j was a gift from Synology and I purchased the DS1512+ later on.

Currently from top to bottom this is how everything is set up:

Synology DS1512+ - currently set up with 4 2TB drives (2 WD Reds and 2 Hitatchi Enterprise Grade) in RAID5. This NAS currently hosts all household backups from all desktops and laptops (including all the Macs). This NAS also provides my vSphere cluster with iSCSI and NFS for VM datastores for vSphere HA

Synology DS212j - currently set up with 2 1.5TB drives in RAID 1. This holds all backups from the two Veeam instances that are running, both on separate Server 2012 R2 VMs.

iomega ix4-200d - Currently set up with 4 250GB drives in RAID 5. This holds all critical backups from the DS1512+

iomega ix4-200d - Currently set up with 4 250GB drives in RAID 5. This holds all critical backups from the DS212j

Server 1 - HP ProLiant DL360G5 - Dual Xeon E5345 2.33GHz Quad core processors with 32GB of memory - 6x 250GB SSDs in RAID6

Server 2 - HP ProLiant DL360G5 - Dual Xeon E5345 2.33GHz Quad core processors with 32GB of memory - 6x 120GB SSDs in RAID6

Server 3 - HP ProLiant DL360G5 - Dual Xeon E5345 2.33GHz Quad core processors with 32GB of memory - 4X 1TB HDDs in RAID10

Server 4 - Dell PowerEdge 1900 - Single Xeon E5450 3.0GHz Quad Core Processor with 24GB of memory - 6x 250GB drives in RAID5 with an online hot spare

Server 5 - Dell PowerEdge C6100 - 4 server nodes total - Each nodes has dual 6 core hyper threaded Xeons with 48GB of memory each - no drives and the system is not plugged in due to ta faulty PCM and some weird wire routing as I haven't worked on it since it fell in to my lap. I do have 2 spare nodes for this system and am looking around for the C6100 to desktop computer conversion chassis

On the back of the rack top to bottom is all my networking equipment. The current home router is a Peplink Balace 310 which normally has 2 Comcast connection that are bonded together and sent back to my Balance 380 in my real datacenter, however my secondary Comcast connection is being utilized else where at this time, however the VPN tunnel is still up so I can stream Netflix in full HD (screw you Comcast). There is also an AT&T LTE card which I send all VoIP traffic through as well as fail over to when the Comcast connection goes down.

My main network switch for the house is a Dell PowerConnect 5448 - there are a total of 30 CAT6 jacks on the 1st and 2nd floors of the house. For the 3rd floor I ran fiber in conduit up to the 3rd floor IDF where it is connected to a 16 port switch to connect all 12 CAT6 jacks on the 3rd floor (Master bedrooms). I also ran fiber to my office because why not...

From there I have a Dell PowerConnect 5424 which handles all iSCSI traffic keeping it very busy and extremely chatty. I set up a separate VLAN for switch management and SNMP data so my Cacti server didn't go crazy trying to grab data.

I have a Dell RPS-600 that both of these switches are connected to on a different UPS.

Now for PICS!!!











This is of course a work always in progress, however I figured it was time to make somewhat of an introductory post to this thread.

P.S. ALWAYS keep a crash cart in your datacenter - you'll thank yourself many times.

I run most of my VMs over iSCSI except for my Windows servers which include my Domain Controller, Exchange Server, Terminal Server, and my Backup Servers (Veeam FTMFW). The Windows servers are split up between the hosts for best resource headroom, at least according to vSphere HA...

~2.2TB total with ~1.3TB usable is still a lot of SSD storage for "home" use. Much bigger and way faster then any i have, also much more expensive.
