On Heavy Networking today, the third (and final, at least for a while) episode talking to folks about their home labs. We’re covering Maarten Van Driessen’s home lab. He’s more in the virtualization space, working with the VMware suite of products including NSX, as well as infrastructure-as-code products like Hashicorp’s Terraform and Packer as well as Ansible.

These use cases create a different hardware demand than you’d have running virtualized network operating system images. Maarten’s going to explain all about it, including where he spent his money and where he discovered how to save some money.
