| A New Continuation

Details coming soon. Basically, Intel NUC sucks when running OpenStack hypervisor. I revised my setup a bit:

Compute node (currently only one):

  • Morex 557 case
  • Noctua NH-L9i
  • ASRock E3C224D2I
  • Xeon E3-1230V3
  • Crucial DDR3 1600 2x8GB ECC
  • picoPSU 160-XT

Controller node:

  • Silverstone PT13 thin mini-itx
  • Gigabyte GA-Q87TN (Intel NIC running public traffic, Realtek NIC running VM traffic)
  • Core i3-4130T
  • Dynatron T459 (28mm height, damn)
  • Crucial SODIMM DDR3 1600 2x8GB non-ECC
  • ADATA SP310 32GB boot
  • Samsung 840 EVO 120GB data (MySQL, blah blah) Maybe I will change it via iSCSI in the future

Storage node:

  • Norco RPC-2008
  • ASRock E3C224-4L (ASRock can suck my ass, EVERY BOARD I bought from them requires at least one RMA. Yep, this one as well. Newegg fucks ass as well) (Because Quad LAN teaming is too mainstream)
  • 8x1TB Hitachi (yep, the ORIGINAL Hitachi drive, manufactured in 2011) 7200rpm SATA II
  • Xeon E3-1220V3 (maybe a better cooler than the stock one)
  • Crucial DDR 1600 4x8GB ECC
  • Plextor m6e PCIe 128GB SSD as boot drive and ZIL

You may wonder, where's the disk on the compute node? Glad that you wondered. All compute nodes will be booting from PXE + TFTP + iSCSI root. It is working without the damn storage node (running on Controller as proof of concept)
