BIND server and DNS service on QNAP TS-453mini
QTS 4.x and the App Center have many applications et services available for Qnap. But there don’t seem to be a stand-alone DNS service. DNS can be enabled when configuring QNAP as a Domain Controller but -1- I don’t need a DC -2- that feature seems to go down quite often. So let’s run the good old BIND boy.
SOGo in Docker container on QNAP TS-453mini
The QNAP ContainerStation allows to run LXC and Docker containers. According to the Internet, this should be less resources consuming than virtualization via KVM. Here’s how I run SOGo in a docker container.
A geek look into QNAP TS-453mini with 16GB RAM
I bought a QNAP TS-453mini in order to replace the good old Synology DS409slim. Not that it doesn’t work. It’s just that the 4x 1TB disks are nearly full. I was desperately waiting for bigger 2.5" capacity but this doesn’t seem to happen. Also, since I moved into a new place, I planned to also reduce the number of plugged)in stuff. Hence, the fanless OpenBSD server would either go in the Cloud or… on the QNAP virtualization software.
