I bought my workstation from the server store. Here are its specs:

Dell Precision T7610
====================
Processor Configuration: Dual Processor
Processors: 2x Xeon® E5-2670 v2 2.5GHz 10-Core Processors, (20C/40T)
Memory: 64GB (8x 8GB) DDR3 Registered Memory
Operating System (Boot) Drive: SATA/SAS Hard Drive/Solid State Drive - RAID Volume
Primary Hard Drive: 512GB SATA 6Gbps SSD
Second Hard Drive: 512GB SATA 6Gbps SSD
Third Hard Drive: 3TB 7.2K 3.5" SAS
Fourth Hard Drive: 3TB 7.2K 3.5" SAS
Storage Controller: PERC H700
Video Card: NVIDIA Quadro K4200 4GB GDDR5 PCI-e 2.0 x16, (2x Display Port, 1x DVI)
Second Video Card: NVIDIA Quadro K4200 4GB GDDR5 PCI-e 2.0 x16, (2x Display Port, 1x DVI)
Optical Drive: DVD-RW
Expansion Slot (1): Network Card
PCIe Expansion Card (1): Intel X540-T2 Dual Port Ethernet 10GbE Server Adapter

The first and second drives are configured as a single RAID 1 volume. Likewise, the third and fourth drives are another RAID 1 volume. The former will be used for the OS and essential VMs, and the latter will be used for low-priority VMs and long-term storage.

In addition, I have the following networking hardware:

  • Netgear Business AC2000 802.11ac Wireless Access Point/Router (WAC124)
  • Netgear 8-port Gigabit Ethernet Switch (GS308)

These will be used to provide connectivity to the lab.
