Here it is, my home server build! The goal of this server was to run multiple virtual machines without having any resource issues. This is why I went with a dual socket motherboard, allowing me to run 16 CPU cores and 128GB of RAM.
I’ll discuss why I picked all the different hardware and hypervisor, as well as run some performance benchmarks to see how well everything performs. The information should help you when selecting the hardware to use in your next server build.
