How to Build a Home Lab

How many of us have tried some new configuration option, utility, or hardware on a production environment, only to crash a critical piece of the business? (me raising hand… 🙂 ) It’s amazing how quickly we learn not to do that! Now we have to decide – do we stop trying out new things because we’re scared of causing problems, or do we come up with a safe way to play and learn?

We’re going to cover how to set up a Home Lab – an isolated environment where you can test new hardware, programs, and applications. By keeping this totally separate from everything else, you get free rein to play without risk to your other systems – and without risk of breaking any company policies!

We’ll cover how to set this up, the equipment needed, and how to configure these. Best of all, you can use throwaway hardware to do it!
