Here you'll find a number of articles which cover the process of building a home lab environment to study virtualisation, automation, cloud, orchestration and other aspects of systems management. I've tried to cover the entire process I went through from start to finish and do so in chronological order. This series is constantly being updated as I add to the environment, so be sure to check back frequently for updates or subscribe to the RSS feed.
