My HomeLab upgrade!!

Finally I was able to upgrade my Homelab this weekend! Yayy!! I have been planning to make few modifications and additions to my Homelab as I was facing major resource constraints when trying to carry out some tests, primarily because I was running multiple nested hosts on a single Nuc; which was already hosting my ADDS and VCSA VMs.
