A highlight of my accomplishments thus-far with PhoenixNet including projects, feats, and learning experiences.
Based off NextCloud, and hosted inside of TrueNAS, this is my go-to "Selfhosted Cloud" for saving my personal files for easy access anywhere. One of my very first projects!
Using 3CX and Cisco IP phones, I designed, deployed, a fully functional SIP-based VoIP system in my lab.
My "personal Imgur" of sorts, allowing hosting of screenshots taken by myself, as well as shortening URLs, hosting text-files, etc. Especially useful for sharing screenshots when uploading images isn't possible in a client.
The efficient way I serve the multiple webservers that I host within PhoenixNet as a whole. Managing NGINX and SSL all configurable via a WebUI.
The two things that got me into, and addicted to virtualization of my infrastructure. PhoenixNet is a 100% VMware lab based off VMWare's top products: ESXi and vCenter.
Allowing for SSO (Single Sign On) across vCenter, SMB Shares, and Domain-joined Windows PCs. Also shapes DNS traffic within PhoenixNet allowing for custom DNS records on-site.
At the core of PhoenixNet's infrastructure is Ubiquti's UniFi Networking hardware routing traffic throughout PhoenixNet via Layer 3 switching and top of the line AC wireless hardware for wireless communication.
The brains of the operation, DellEMC hardware (R-Series Poweredge Servers) run the various operations that PhoenixNet serve.
