I was using Digital Ocean for a while and lately AWS,
I have decided to build my own private VM server that will be at home with the following specs
Asrock x399 Tiachi
32GB DDR4 3200MHz
4x 500GB NVMe SSD’s in Hyper m.2 PCI-e card (RAID 0)
2x 2TB 2.5" SATA SSD’s (RAID 1)
2x 10TB SATA2 HDD’s (RAID 1)
1x GTX 970 4GB
2x GTX1080’s (To be added later)
I have been using my Intel Core M3, 4GB RAM laptop for most of my college work for the past 18 months and have decided instead of getting a new laptop that I will do most of the heavy work on the above home server remotely
MY QUESTION is what software will I need to run on the Threadripper server, like it was an AWS cloud service so I was thinking vmware software of some kind?
Is there any opensource alternatives to vmware, I need software to manage the cloud remotely and I need to use SSH via the command line to provision new VM’s on my private server, including setting up SSD and memory for each VM and manage the VM’s while they are in operation?
From bare metal what software does say AWS use to offer a service like “Lightsail” https://aws.amazon.com/lightsail/
Thanks in Advance
