Gateway + NAS
My hope is to build a gateway + NAS server. I know that their is many more efficient ways to get that, but I'm working to become a sysadmin so this machine will be as a sand-box as a useful server for myself. I only learned virtualization with WinServ 2008 R2 + Hyper-V, I'de like to change !
Hardware (can change, I didn't buy it yet) :
- i3 3.3 GHz
- 8 Go RAM DDR3
- 64 Go SSD (for 3 OS)
- 2x 1 To raid 1 (soft or hard ?)
- 2x RJ45
- Host : Slackware (my main distro) + Virtual Box, or Ubuntu + Xen. This OS should only have access to LAN interface. Is that possible ?
- VM1 : IPCop, with WAN and LAN RJ45
- VM2 : FreeNAS, with LAN RJ45 only and the 2 hard drives
So as you can see, my objective is to split up gateway and NAS to get my datas secured buy IPCop. Does my assembly work as I imagine it ?
Thank you to all contributors !
