The Open Homelab project started as a nugget of an idea for a roundtable discussion session at the London VMUG in April 2016.

Homelab presentations are some of the most popular at VMUGs, but it was felt that the contents of these sessions is always lost at the end of them, as only the attendees could consume it. What was needed was a method for crowdsourcing and capturing the collective homelab knowledge and experiences of the community, to provide people with a single source of information to help them make decisions on the best homelab solution based on their individual requirements.

Although the site was started from a VMware user group, a homelab is a homelab, and as such we are keen for people across the IT community to contribute with their knowledge and tips across operating systems, hypervisors and applications.
