If you’re looking for a good home lab and don’t have a large budget (or even if you do), I urge you to take a look at Ravello Systems . Keep in mind this is a nested virtualization solution, so heavier workloads may still be best suited for your stay at home server. Overall, Ravello is an incredibly well polished product and their documentation is top-notch. The ability to stand up entire environments from a blueprint is a huge feather in their cap and elevates the home lab to what it should be. While so many cloud solutions are focused on DR and hosting production workloads, it’s nice to see someone focusing on making test labs simpler.
