Homelab BOM

outside

Selling my dual Xeon based VMware vSphere home lab, it’s not being used as much as before as I’m not that hands-on anymore. It’s a single host with a total of 16 cores (32 threads) of 2.1GHz (boost to 3.0GHz), 256GB memory, and 4TB storage. Ideal for a powerful, quiet, energy efficient (nested) VMware vSphere homelab with tons of expansion options.
