When I feel down I remember this exists.
We got approval from leadership to replace our NAS used for backups at work so I thought it’d be an interesting topic to write about. Our current solution is a NAS with the disks set up in RAID as an iSCSI target which the Windows Server Backup application on our Hyper-V host uses to create nightly backups of the Hyper-V guests to. The solution works so I’m not going to reinvent the wheel, just recreate it.
Since this is my first blog post about my home network since I launched the new blog I’ll make it a bit more detailed. I’m connected to Australia’s NBN network using FTTC technology, pretty lame compared to some other countries but still functional enough at 100/40mbit. It’s a combination of new and (mostly) used technology but I’ve got it all working together.
Hello, and welcome to my blog! After a rather long break I’m back, and this time I’m not playing around with setting up an instance of Ghost or WordPress on a VPS, within a Proxmox guest on my home server or on WordPress.com. I’ve chosen to go with Dreamhost which means I won’t need to invest time maintaining the back-end and can focus on delivering content.
Some of the last posts on my old blog were about my home network – the never-complete rolling project, and that’s where I intend to kick things off here soon. I’m sad when a blog I follow just disappears or the author stops posting so I’ll try to be consistent but no promises!
