  1. 1. What server are you running at home?



Recommended Posts

I voted for my primary server. In addition to a Win10 box I have a 2011 box as an app server and a Raspberry PI running as a vpn.

Not boring to me. Any build is always a great adventure/accomplishment.  Looks like you lucked out on the WD Reds. what kind of VMs fit on that size SSD?

 

I'm running 5 VM's at the mo, a Windows 10 test machine that I span up the other day as I've been having issues with Outlook logins.

A Windows 10 Plex Server.

A Windows 10 "Share" machine.

A Windows 10 "Torrent" box.

A Windows 10 DC++ Hub.

With Deduplication switched on I've got 170Gb free as well :D

 

All of my data is spread over the spinners using Stablebit Drivepool and are all being watched by Stablebit Scanner.

 

I also actively monitor and look after a few servers for friends as well, my old Gen7 is running Win10/Plex for a friend (8Gb RAM 3Tb HDD Space) for him to Plex stuff on his Playstation, and a pair of Gen 8's for other friends also for Plex/Backup at their houses, all bar the Gen7 are covered by Drivepool and Scanner.

Glad to see I am not the only one running WHS V1. 

 

This poll was truly just to find you guys! V1 FTW!!!  

 

I still have two of the boxes and can't bring myself to sell them. I may fire one up just for grins.

It still runs flawlessly for me so no need to make a change. But gven it no longer receives updates I am planning to move it to Windows 10 with stable bit products. The box it is running on has to be 10 years old, maybe even 15. I ran it as my desktop for several years before moving it to Windows home server.

Speaking of WHSv1, this was my build over 10 years ago, lol. "Vail" (WHS2011) was just about to be released a year later.

I switched to WHS2011 in 2012 when I started running into issues with Storage Pool (disks randomly dropping out), which I later attributed to low quality SATA power connectors. WHS2011 served me 8 years until I switched to Windows Server 2019 a couple of months ago.
