The goal of this project is using (server) hardware that is available in the hackerspace to set up virtualization software, so multiple server OS and service can be install/hosted/played with, both "in production" as well serving as a "playground".
Not being really sure when this project actually started, since this idea has been living for quite some time...
Betz then setup a laptop with proxmox, put a sticker on it "KEEP IT RUNNING. LIVE VM'S", and let it run 24/7.
Some time later a Dell PowerEdge R710 was acquired which can serve as a proxmox server.
