I'd like to connect an Intel NUC to my TV, just to watch some online content (don't want to use microserver because it is to big and noisy + don't need 4 bays and microserver has no ILO).
Meanwhile this NUC could host some vm's for a small test domain with an SCCM server, SQL server, domain controller and 2 W10 clients
Important thing here is to have an KVM, so I can remotely fully configure the NUC.
Also, the NUC would be put underneath my TV in a closed box, so I'd like to optimize cooling in order to minimize heath and specificall noise(!).
Total budget would be some hundreds of Dollars (about 600 max). Got a Synology NAS which I could use for storage OR buy internal SSD(?)
So my questions:
-what Intel NUC would you advise in my case and what config?
-run vm's on NUC or on Synology
-how to have KVM access to the NUC (ILO ...), what should I buy? note: apparently with some models it can be done out of the box http://www.virten.net/2013/11/howto-intel-nuc-remote-kvm-with-amt-powered-by-vpro/?
-what about cooling of the NUC and NAS? is there some cooling I could put around these machines (like tubes with cooling or put them in a small box with specific cooling ...?)
-is there a way to access hyper-v vm's via a web interface (like on ESXi is possible)?
Thanks for your input!
