At 45HomeLab we know homelabbers have a strong vision of the infrastructure they want. But here's the problem: today's home storage offerings are too underpowered for homelab use. And, their software platform is locked down which prevents you from doing what you want to. On the other hand, enterprise solutions are just too big and expensive. We understand how frustrating this is, which is why we've created the 45HomeLab product line. It is big, strong, fast, while also being open and flexible so you can easily modify, upgrade, and repair it, all at a price that makes sense for a power homelab user.
