What hardware do people use for hobbyist-level home labs that host services like nextcloud, gitea, that you access from out and about?
I've only ever used Raspberry Pis, and I'd like to make a performance upgrade. Perhaps a RockPro64?
@mcol rpi and pine64 have been neat. But for my nextcloud, git, etc. I have an old laptop that is still functional but no good for mobile life anymore.
@vbatts What made you decide to use the laptop for these kind of applications? Is it simply more powerful?
@mcol compute power was nice. Fetching containers that are already prepared was nice. I was at first hitting some bizarre issues with btrfs and the ancient kernels on pine64 (still 3.10) and rpi at the time
@vbatts ah I see, yeah fair enough
@kev Useful write-up! What made you choose that machine over others that have similar specs?
@quaylessed Fair enough, definitely saves a lot of hassle!
