Win a Home Lab

Having your own Home Lab is one of the best things a geek can ask to IT Gods! There are many IT Pro’s (including me) who uses either Software Home Lab i.e. on VMware Workstation, Oracle VM Virtualbox or Cloud Lab by Ravello Systems. However, very few can afford the Hardware Lab due to CapEx it has!

Would you not like to get a Hardware Lab for FREE? There are few vendors who understands the financial constraints of IT pros and pitches in with sweepstakes and giveaways. One of those is, good guys at Turbonomic (formerly known as VMTurbo) who have been doing it since last 2 years (Why no APAC winner yet though?) and now, Unitrends have pitched in to giveaway a Dream Lab worth $5000 as a New Year gift. So, well I thought I should do my bit and share with like minded friends and write about it. So with out further ado,
