Return to Hardware

Servers

I run one main server (hardware-wise, at least). Up until early 2019 it ran ‘bare-metal’ Server 2012 R2 Essentials. Then I joined the new wave and migrated to VMs. Aaah, so much nicer. I do still have a NAS for backups though.

Main Server

Hardware:

Roles:

  • VM Host.
  • File Storage.

VM 1

OS:
Windows Server 2019 Essentials
Roles:

  • Domain Controller (Active Directory)
  • DNS Server (domain based)
  • Web Server (IIS with reverse proxy enabled)
  • MySQL Server (web and application databases)
  • Monitorr (services monitor)
  • Calibre (eBook management)
  • Plex Server (media management)
  • Tautulli (Plex server monitoring)

  • Downloader (NZBGet, uTorrent)
  • Radarr (Movie monitoring)

  • LazyLibrarian (eBook monitoring)

VM 2

OS:
Ubuntu Server 18.04.2 LTS

NAS

I have an old QNap TS-420 handling my backups. Windows Server does it’s own bare-metal recovery to it, and I deltacopy the important files across weekly. Nice and simple.
