One of my long term plans is to consolidate to a single network manufacturer for my home networking. After months of deliberations, I decided to bite the bullet and just move to Ubiquiti Unifi.
Why? Really because I am getting sick of the missing components in the Unifi dashboard.
With the new router in place I can finally fill in the first 2 spots in the chain - Internet Capacity and Router Utilisation.
Yes these two may well be unnecessary, and yes Ubiquiti should have support for third party routers like Untangle and pfSense. But all said and done, I hope to have a final single pane of view for my network.
After using ESXi for almost a decade, and around 3 for Snakeoil development, I decided it’s time to move on to other hypervisors with my new Ryzen server.
I want dedicated hypervisors running on bare metal, so the two leading contenders are XCP-ng and Proxmox VE . At the time I tried searching online but just could not find a definitive answer for my use case.
In the end I decided to go with XCP-ng first and see how it goes. After about 5 months of use, I decided to try out Proxmox VE. Here’s my experience so far with XCP-ng and now PVE.
