What do you use a Raspberry Pi for in a server rack?

Hello! Not really sure if this would be in Server or Networking, so I thought I would post it here. 


I currently am using a Raspberry Pi 3 for PiHole in my server rack. I wanted to see what others are using on these devices. Thinking about doing a PlexPi or something similar.

You can do lots of things with it, you can run it as a DHCP server, a DNS server, a mail server, an SSH server, as a VPN...
