I built a Home server with LXD

A few months ago my NAS broke, it was due to some obscure CPU bug. Even though all the HDDs were working I could not get it to boot.

I decided to build my own home server that would host these HDDs and do much more than just a NAS. I now have a home server that does the following:

  • Livebook Machine Learning rig (featuring CUDA)
  • Network attached storage
  • Windows 11 VM
  • Much more

I set everything up using Ubuntu, LXD and ZFS. If you’re interested in learning how it all ties together then read on.
