Since I have a dedicated hypervisor with 32GB of DDR3 RAM, it would make sense to migrate the sites I host on the FreeNAS box to a VM. Continue reading “Hosting migration”
I was rereading a lot of my old posts and realized there are a lot of things I haven’t updated the site on. I’ve moved on from Sophos UTM appliance to the much more configurable PFSense! Continue reading “Firewalls in a VM”
My sites are currently not protected with SSL certificates, so things are being transmitted via HTTP. Implementing SSL certificates is one of the goals I want to achieve in the near future, especially when Chrome is planning on distrusting basically all of Symantec issued certificates.

Many things to share but not enough time to create individual posts so I’ll just make one. Even writing this took over a month to finish…
The current setup of storage for my Proxmox server is mostly local storage with ISOs located on the FreeNAS server connected via NFS. With only 500GB of hard drive space on the VM host, there’s not a lot of space for VMs nor disk IO.
With a single gigabit connection between the VM host and file server, the throughput still imposes a large amount of latency. Perhaps bonding the 2 interfaces on the remaining Intel Pro 1000 on the VM host to create a logical interface would increase throughput. Of course the other end would have a pair of gigabit interfaces to go along with it too.
