Hi there i am in need of a little bit of help what open source nas would people recommend to run a VM with unifi controller installed on
While TrueNAS does have a hypervisor, I don’t really think it’s great for running a VM so I don’t really have any NAS suggestions that I have used.
Not exactly what you were looking for, but I can tell you that the UniFi controller works well in a Debian VM on a Synology “+” NAS (mine is a DS718+). You’ll need to add RAM to the NAS in order to have enough for the VM, however.
I have mine running on an Ubuntu server VM that is running on unRAID.
I‘m running the controller as docker container on my NAS since years.
Should be not that ressource hungry than a VM.
