This is a youtube video I did a few years ago about data networking. Except for the specific switch type recommendations, most of it is valid today.

I mention some different types of switches and firewalls in the podcast. This is what they look like, click on picture for more info from the manufacturer. You can also get price estimates at my Amazon store.


You can buy these online, but it may be most useful for you to work with a local data networking reseller and system integrator. They can offer you prices just as good as and maybe better than online, can help you plan your data network, and have engineers and service technicians that will design, deploy, upgrade, and support your data network.

Have you looked into solar or wind powered mining rigs?

I'd be happy to set up a mining container near a solar or wind power facility. For running a few hundred miners that would be a huge solar power operation.
