Home Lab

Reading Time: < 1 minute

Hey everyone! Like most of you, I used to have plenty of systems operating all day long. During the past couple of months, I decided to decommission all of my auxiliary systems and make better use of my primary systems. Nowadays, I don’t run anything 24/7, I mostly use ephemeral lab environments using automation and Microsoft Azure 🙂
