Thanks to Broadcom buying and messing up VMware, I'm on the look for a new lab hypervisor. I've recently bought new hardware to give me flexibility to test and I'm ready to get my new hypervisor loaded!

In this video I walk through installing and configuring Ubuntu 22.04, integrating with Morpheus CMP, and deploying a KVM + Ceph hypervisor known at 'MVM'.

We are picking up where our Home Network Upgrade video https://youtu.be/7H5MXXAE8Ms left off and bringing you all the details on our Homelab server racks network setup. This detailed how to is focused on redoing our entire layout for our mini datacenter and bringing us 600Gbits of connected switching with our aggregate network consisting of 1Gbit networking, 10Gbit fiber networking and 40Gbit ethernet networking based off our Mellanox, Dell, and Brocade switches. We are using DAC cables for our 40Gbit connections, OM-2 fiber for our 10Gbit sfp+ connections and CAT6 patch panel. I cover everything needed for this setup. We start off with planning our home network. I rearrange the network switches to better accommodate the access to the 40Gbit switch and the fat QSFP cables. I install Network Cable Management trays that span from the rack to the structured media panel also. I take you step by step on server rack cable management as well with cable management arms, rack cable management ties and networking cable management trays. Finally, we power up our homelab datacenter racks and you get to hear the quad socket servers humming to life.

After setting up my Proxmox servers, there are a few things I do before I use them for their intended purpose. This ranges from updates, to storage, to networking and VLANS, to uploading ISOs, to clustering, to NIC teaming with LACP, and more. Join me as we pick up where the rest of the proxmox tutorials stop, and that's everything you need to do to make these production ready (and maybe a bonus item too)
