Then during clean up and adding new gear and sorting cable to be more efficient and easier on cooling fans to be install in roof of rack

 was annoyed about the cloudkey just hanging ( pre-Cloudkey Gen2 announced ) as well as wanted a UAS-XG for steam caching which i still need to implement on the UAS-XG soon, So i ordered a UAS-XG Server , due to MB 10Gb heat issue upgraded fans with an additional and now get 10degrees lower

My internet comes directly into 2 x SFP VDSL modems profile 17b ( 120mb rated speeds , even though my line is 35b of 200MB down and 20mb up , waiting on 35b to ne more available like the Draytek Vigor 165 bridge modem or a new SFP module tht is 35b

The cloudkey Gen2 is GREAT alternative to the UAS-XG server if you just want a decent local controller.  Bonus will be unifi protect w/ local video storage once protect gets more mainstream and replaces unifi-video.  Here's my G2 cloudkey in the new rack mount accessory.  Certainly solves the "dangling cloudkey" issue!  Very nice setup you have BTW.

That is sweet , I am waiting for Gen2 plus with rack so I can make my UAS-XG just for steam cache

4 weeks ago

I have ordered a Cloudkey Gen2 Plus, waiting its arrival next week

 

Moving site controller of UAS-XG to CloudKey Gen2 Plus, so can flatten UAS-XG and make it more dedicated to caching server 

 

When is the rack kit for Cloudkey gen2 going to be available ?
