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.



We’ve been circulating it internally, we all loved it, keep em coming!
Thanks Zack
