What I run in the lab/homeserver?

Except for testing stuff I find on the web there're things running permanently as "core" services.

  • Domain Controller
  • Splunk for logs collection
  • Bitwarden as password manager
  • Home Assistant
  • RevProxy
  • Syncthing for inbound backups
  • lots of other things

Most of above run within Docker containers which I manage with Portainer
