Turning A Basement Into A Big Linux Server Room
Written by Michael Larabel in Computers on 29 March 2015. Page 10 of 10. 36 Comments

Thanks to the Phoronix open-source benchmarking software, the server room basically runs itself aside from when hardware/software issues come up on any of the systems. In a later Phoronix article I'll have more about the actual server setup/configurations, etc.

My main Phoronix office remains the same and that's where most of the code development happens along with all of the Linux hardware tests that require manual intervention, swapping out of hardware components, etc. For those that missed it, there was a walk-through of the Phoronix office last year.

Thanks to the Phoronix Test Suite and Phoromatic enterprise customers that made this basement server build possible. Also thanks to Phoronix Premium subscribers for supporting our continued public Linux hardware testing.

Anyone with further questions about this basement server build or would like any other tips / product recommendations, feel free to comment on this article in the Phoronix Forums or tweet @MichaelLarabel or Phoronix on Facebook and Twitter. Aside from the construction supplies, most everything else was bought via Amazon.com, even the low-price furniture.

Back to Linux benchmarking!
