Homelab Updates!

It's been well over a month since I finally decided to retire both of my Apple Mac Minis in favor for a single (for the time being), quieter, and more powerful Intel NUC.

Migrating over my existing KVM and VirtualBox VMs to my new KVM server was a really easy process. If doing the import manually, then it's just a matter of selecting the existing vdi and qcow2 images as the source disks when creating the guests VMs on the server. In my cause, however I also had to update the new MAC address given that all of my VMs are configured to get their respective fixed IP addresses via my isc-dhcpd server.

This this was somewhat of a fresh start, so I nuked a bunch of unused VMs that I had lingering around for testing purposes, and only kept what I really need for now. Which at the time of this writing these are my current active VMs that I use on my homelab:
proxy - Reverse proxy Varnish and Nginx (SSL termination)
dhcp - ISC-dhcpd and PXE server
database - MySQL and PostgreSQL server
monitor - Nagios, Graphite/Grafana
web - Apache
ns1 - Master BIND server
ns2 - Slave BIND server
git - GitLab and Subversion
ansible - Ansible and Puppet Configuration Management
build - Jenkins
logs - ELK stack

Future Plans:
I have lots of future plans for my homelab. Like upgrading my BIND DNS servers to a new version and rollout out DNSSec on my local network, upgrading dhcp server (running a really old version of Debian), rollout 389 Directory Server (I have a love/hate relationship with openldap). These are just to name a few!
