Badger's Recommended Stack Rundown¶
A new page for May 2022, here's a high level overview snapshot of PMS as it stands today.
Access the living and breathing repository I use to configure all my infrastructure on GitHub at ironicbadger/infra.
|CPU||Intel i5 8500||iGPU with built-in Quicksync transcoding hardware|
|Motherboard||ASRock Rack E3C246D4U||IPMI + iGPU support. Full write-up here|
|Case||Rosewill RSV-L4500||Pre-covid this case was often under $100 but at current prices of $200 and up, it's a tough recommendation|
|Memory||Corsair DDR4 64GB - Non ECC||64GB is enough to run my entire production stack without being tempted to use it as a dev environment too|
|Boot Drive||Samsung 500GB M.2 NVMe SSD|
|Power Supply||Seasonic PRIME 850 Gold||Electricity makes computer go brrrrrr. 850w is probably overkill for this use case. 5-600w would be adequate.|
|Hard Drives||A mix of drives from 8-14tb||See HDD purchasing methodology for more details|
|Type||Product / Version||Reason|
|OS||Proxmox 7.2||ZFS support and VM UI is nice to have.|
|Parity||SnapRAID||Increases uptime and fights bit-rot style corruption|
|Drive pooling||mergerfs||Present many disks under one mountpoint|
|Container runtime||docker||Do I need a reason?|
|Container||Purpose||Relevant content link|
|Traefik||Reverse proxy||Traefik 101 Guide|
|Authelia||Basic auth frontend|
|Plex||Media server||Top 10 Apps - Plex|
