Deploying a DevOps playground at home with Debian Linux and VirtualBox

This is the first of a serie of posts describing how to deploy a playground for DevOps learning and experimenting. This home lab will be deployed in my home computer, a modest HP Pro 3300 micro tower 🙂

As host machine we will use a computer with a Debian 10 Linux system. VirtualBox will be used to create a local private network and 4 virtual servers: a “Control Server” and three nodes, “Node #1”,
“Node #2” and “Node #3”
