Recent project: setting up #pihole on dedicated hardware.
I wasn't happy with the complications that arose from running pihole in #docker on my home server, so I wanted dedicated appliances. I decided to use a #raspi and a PC Engines APU that was my former home router.
#Debian is straight-up HARD to install on something without a graphics card. CentOS makes this easy, but...
Nah. It isn't anything special aside from being a nice piece of hardware.
Acquired a surplus Axiomtek NA-560 and a small SATA SSD to run opnsense on. That's what replaced the APU which also ran opnsense. The APU was working pretty hard when the network got busy (250 MB/s) so I wanted some breathing room. Plus I can rack this unit instead of having it on a shelf.
Now that you mention it... My network rack may be worth a short blog post though...
