My Home Lab

A home lab is a personal setup where I experiment with and learn about different IT systems and technologies. It acts as a sandbox environment where I can test configurations, deploy applications, and troubleshoot issues without the risks associated with a live production environment.

Building my home lab has been crucial to my growth as a sys admin. Additionally, I use it as a personal server, which allows me to manage and host various services and applications. This hands-on experience enhances my skills and keeps me updated with the latest trends and technologies in the field.

The server handles all my movies, TV shows, music, and photos, providing easy access and smooth playback anywhere, anytime. This setup ensures that my media is always available and organized, enhancing my entertainment experience.


I host Nextcloud on my home lab to manage and sync files, calendars, contacts, and more across all my devices. This private cloud solution provides secure, reliable access to my data from anywhere, ensuring that I have complete control over my information while benefiting from seamless collaboration and synchronization.


I host Passbolt on my home lab to securely manage and share passwords and other sensitive information. This self-hosted password manager offers robust encryption and easy team collaboration, ensuring that my credentials are safe and accessible only to authorized users.
