Servers in the Data Center

I use Linux/OpenSource for most of my testing needs. I installed Ubuntu 14.04.3 LTS with Virtualization support because I was comfortable with its package management options.

Here are the servers that I installed on my system. Contrary to prevalent opinion, I found documentation for installation and setting up the services fairly easy to follow and straightforward.

Authentication, authorization, and accounting (AAA) – I use Both Tacacs & FreeRadius for AAA. OpenSource options for both are available.

FreeRadius – http://www.ubuntugeek.com/install-freeradius-on-ubuntu-15-04-server-and-manage-using-daloradius-freeradius-web-management-application.html

Tacacs – http://www.routingloops.co.uk/cisco/tacacs-on-ubuntu-14-04-lts/

Domain Name System (DNS) /Bind – https://help.ubuntu.com/lts/serverguide/dns.html

SFLOW –  ntopng http://idroot.net/tutorials/how-to-install-ntopng-on-ubuntu-14-04/

Syslog Server (rsyslogd) – https://community.spiceworks.com/how_to/65683-configure-ubuntu-server-12-04-lts-as-a-syslog-server

Network Time Protocol Server (NTP) – http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=862620

NFS Server – https://help.ubuntu.com/community/SettingUpNFSHowTo & https://www.digitalocean.com/community/tutorials/how-to-set-up-an-nfs-mount-on-ubuntu-14-04

DHCP Server – The OmniSwitch series of switches have DHCP-Server support.

In addition, I have other applications running
Python with Paramiko for scripting support
Github/Golang
OpenSsh
TFTP
