Portable Virtualization Server

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

About

For some of my classes, we need a lot of virtualization. Usually everyone runs his own VMs on this/her laptop, but not everyone has enough resources.

So I came up with this solution, a small portable server that I can just carry in my backpack and plug it in during the classes. Most of the components I have already, just the CPU and motherboard I had to buy.

To start off, I will use 16GB of RAM, but might upgrade this if needed.

 

Specification

CPU: Intel Xeon E3-1245 V2

CPU Cooling: Scythe Kozuti

Motherboard: ASUS B75M-PLUS

Memory: Kingston KVR1333D3N9/4G (4x) (16GB)

Storage: OCZ Agility 3 120GB, Kingston 8GB SSDnow, WD 500GB (WD5000BEKT)

Case: CoolerMaster Elite 100

Power Supply: Seasonic SS300M1U

Fan: Noctua NF-P14 FLX, 2x Noctua NF-A4x10

Switch: TP-Link TL-SG1005D (Soon to be replaced to TL-SG105)

still think the noctua fan is fcking ugly... 

probably noone will be staring at the server itself and even if they they wont able to see it so i doubt it will ever make a difference for him

The fan is mounted on top of the case indeed because there isn't enough space within the case. But then again, it's a server, doesn't need to be very nice.

You do realize that this is not made to look pretty at all. Just look at it, it's not bad though because its the horsepower that matters.

I personally adore the allure of cream colored things.

I was going to suggest something, but since i don't have any idea if it would work (i haven't tested but in theory it would work), you already have the hardware for it and i don't know for what you use the VMs for... nevermind...


Signatures are stupid.

Go ahead and suggest, I'm open to suggestions.

 

The VM's are mainly Windows Servers, but there will also be some Debian servers. All of them are to test stuff with.

Connect virt-manager to a qemu/kvm server through WAN...
