Some pictures of everything
Here you can see quite a bit – 3 ESXi hosts, Synology DS1815+ NAS, monitor and keyboard for local troubleshooting, 1000VA UPS.
The “rack” is a couple of black Ikea LACK tables held together with steel L brackets I picked up at Home Depot. The R610s are held up by the same L brackets.. The bottom shelf if the top of a third LACK table bolted onto the legs of the bottom table. They are held off the ground by 4″ legs from Ikea.
esxi-01 is the big 4U T610 on the shelf. Below is are esxi-02 and 03, which are 1U R610s. Directly below each shelf is a TP-Link 24 port 1GbE switch. Below the top switch is the ZyXel USG 50 firewall/L3 core. Each ESXi host has 4 uplinks, 2 to each switch. All VLANs are trunked on all ESXi-facing ports, as well as uplinks to the firewall.
