Running node on NAS (synology)?

Since the node seems to run from a docker image (or am I wrong here already?) and my Synology NAS supports docker, what would stop me from running a node on my NAS?

Hi @Staker,

Can you post your Synology NAS specs?
Incognito container require at least 4CPUs, 4GBs of RAM, and 250GB SSD.
Please also show me the docker ps -a and docker logs inc_mainnet


Hi @khanhj,

I have a DS918+, meaning that’s a quad-core Intel Celeron J3455. It also has 4GB of RAM (which is expandable if necessary). The only thing is I currently only have HDD’s in it. I could of course add an SSD.
I can’t show you the docker container running yet as I haven’t tried it yet. I was just wondering if it should work or not. And what happens if I run it anyway (without an SSD)?

if it’s running linux Debian based, i think it should work.
since the incognito node access disk io write/read a lot then it’s better to run on a ssd.
anyway you should give your hdd a try…
