Home Lab Series: Mini ESXi Hosts at The Network Edge

Home Lab Series: Mini ESXi Hosts at The Network Edge

This all started when I saw that Cisco used to offer a product called SRE-V which was basically ESXi packaged up to run on their SRE

I purchased 4 of the Cisco SRE (Service Ready Engine) Service Modules SM-SRE-910-K9, these come with 8GB of RAM and 2 x 500GB SATA 5400RPM HDDs and an Intel(R) Core(TM)2 Duo L9400 which is a dual core 1.86GHz CPU.
