VMware Homeserver – ESXi on 7th Gen Intel NUC (Kaby Lake) [virten.net]
Intel’s 7th Gen NUC is currently rolled out and after a resolved issue with the NIC driver, it’s time to take a look at their capabilities as homeserver running VMware ESXi. NUCs are not officially supported by VMware but they are very widespread in many homlabs or test environments. They are small, silent, transportable and have a very low power consumption, making it a great server for your homelab. I’ve posted a preview of the new models about 2 months ago. Gen7 NUCs are available with i3, i5 and i7 CPU.
