I'm considering building a server to learn all about servers and virtualization and so on.
I don't have a good idea of what exactly I need though.
Servers need lots of RAM in real use and such, but for a home lab use do I need 32 GB or even 16 GB?
How should I future proof? Are hyper-threaded Xeons much better?
I would use this server for anything I can get my hands on through schools and in the future and I guess
that would include things like Virtualization, Windows, Linux, database, file, mail, print, web -servers...
