Intel NUC HomeLab BOM

UPDATE: Sold

Have finally decided to sell my Intel NUC based VMware vSphere home lab, it’s not being used anymore as I’m fortunate to have access to more powerful hardware at work. In summary, it’s 4 nodes with a total of 16 cores (32 threads) of 2.9GHz (boost to 3.5GHz), 224GB memory, and 2TB storage. Essentially everything you need, bar a switch, for a powerful VMware vSphere homelab.

Below is the full bill of materials which is for sale as a complete bundle for €2,800 ono (approx £2,500 or $3,400)
