I need to keep them up 24/7
Authored by: Hodag on Oct 04, '07 09:17:23AM

I work at home and have three DSL lines in from different companies for load sharing/redundancy. I can not afford to shut them down otherwise clients can't access their backups when I'm not around and they tend to get a bit irate.
That being said, most folks don't normally keep a pocket server farm in their basement...

Server farm in the basement
Authored by: aramis on Oct 04, '07 09:28:32AM

The only reason I don't keep a pocket server farm in the basement is because the basement is too damp! They're up stairs in the bedroom, actually.

Yes, I have a very understanding significant other...

Never as well here. Up 24x7 because I and the wife use it all the time. Not to mention her parents (remotely), my parents (remotely), other family members, a few friends, and many of my clients.

The server farm is in the basement where I host my own services. Primarily email and dns (for all) and vnc/vpn for a few as needed. Backup services and web hosting for others that want/need it.

Nothing like having a 10Mbit (symmetrical) at home... :)
