Basic Lab Info

Hardware

The majority of infrastructure is run on two Dell R710 servers behind a 4 NIC Qotom computer running pfSense firewall. The hardware was chosen out of convenience, on sale or free. In a perfect world I would be running something completely open source, like the Power 9 Talos II with fully open and auditable BMC firmware.
