Domino in a VM or Docker on a Synology NAS?

Tuesday, December 5th, 2017
I have a low-use Domino server that I want to retire. At the same time, I want to keep some of the Domino databases active for the future to replicate with my Notes client. Again, this is low use - 2 people, possibly 3.

I have a Synology DS918+ NAS which has support for Virtual machines and for Docker. I've been considering either setting up Domino to run in a VM or possible a Docker setup. The Synology NAS


I wonder if anyone reading this blog has experience setting up a Domino Instance in a small VM or in a Docker Instance on a NAS? If so, I welcome any insights you care to share.

Hey Eric, please drop me a mail, I can share my dockerfile and some ideas with you. Small is something else ;) my Docker container is about 2.5GB without any data or user.

I will contact you by email.

Here are some of his helpful links

And, for an overview of Docker (I am still learning) I found these helpful

I have not made much progress yet as this is all new to me.

I hope this helps
