Homelab – Docker under the hood

Ok so continuing from the previous post, as I more-or-less added all things that I consider essential, lets wee what is under the hood on my system. the applications that I have enabled currently for the more visual types Media apps We can not have a media server without media apps, so I have a…


Homelab – Redesign

After some careful consideration I decided to completely redesign my homelab. While the kubernetes-based approach worked well for most of the things, I did not like: the administration overhead of managing those separate serversdid not really needed enterprise-level redundancy and uptime, as I mostly ran only media server applications – could tolerate some downtimemost importantly…
