  1. JupyterNotebook jupyter/base-notebook
  2. Assuming that encryption/decryption happens remotely and the server ever only handles the encrypted data.
  3. I always recommend against using unRAID for business purposes for various reasons but chief among them is that in my opinion security on unRAID is not up to snuff for business purposes. With this is mind I would even more strongly recommend not using unRAID in your case. If its not secure enough for regular business data it certainly is not secure enough for anything someone would consider "very sensitive".
  4. I am not super knowledgeable about swap, but I think the best place to put a swap file would be on a drive mounted with the Unassigned drives plugin. The cache pool would probably be the next best place. I am certain that you wouldnt want it in the unRAID array. As to SSD vs HDD, I would guess an SSD would be the way to go but it probably depends on your usage pattern. BTW 128GB seems like a lot for swap space.
  5. Well you could start with one of the youtube-dl based images if it generally meets your needs. Otherwise you might try one of the python base images https://hub.docker.com/_/python. If you install the container using community applications then you can access the console within the container from the unraid webgui by choosing the container on the dashboard and selecting the console button. Alternatively you can access the container from the unraid commandline using a docker exec command (using -it) https://docs.docker.com/engine/reference/commandline/exec/. Once you get the container configured the way you want you will probably want to use https://docs.docker.com/engine/reference/commandline/commit/ docker commit to make your own image. Could you describe a bit more the setup you were going for initially? Might help me point you in the right direction.
  6. I would still go with using docker containers. Either a single custom python container with the apps installed which you use and access kind of like a little vm. Or adjust your scripts/workflow to launch the commands in containers using docker run.
  7. My opinion is that unRAID in its current form is not suitable for business use. First and foremost from a security standpoint unRAID is not hardened enough for standards of most (and ideally all) businesses. Additionally support for unRAID primarily happens through the community forums. Official support and documentation is not robust enough for a business. And for your use case specifically, unRAID's VM management interface lacks a number of the features present in more mainstream Virtualization interfaces (even if the features are technically available through the command line). Everything i have seen suggests that Limetech is targeting home media users. It is a great OS for what it was designed for, a home media NAS.
  8. My word of caution would be that you are planning on trekking into somewhat uncharted territory. Since you are planning on using a configuration that is not officially supported (to my knowledge) you will likely have trouble finding other forum users who have the requisite knowledge to provide support should you encounter problems. Also worth mentioning to new users looking to go off the reservation, despite being built on top of Linux unRAID is not just another distro. Its more like a purpose built NAS appliance OS. Just because something is easy to do, or well supported in most common distros, doesnt mean it will be possible in unRAID. I dont know if it will effect your particular situation, but it is often a stumbling block for people coming in without a clear understanding of what unRAID is (who also tend to be the crowd coming in wanting to something beyond the normal use case).
  9. I will throw out my boilerplate warning here that in my opinion unRAID is not a suitable business solution (even for small business). At this time the OS appears to be squarely focused at the home user market. Specifically the security, development cycle time, and availability of official documentation and support are not up to snuff for usage in business. Additionally, getting support for more complicated login and security schemes tends to be difficult as very few people tend to use these setups and support is mostly community provided. One option you might look into for a sort of security/portal page to sit in front of dockers is Organizr (available as a docker). Again its not really meant for business use but I use it for home stuff and it works fairly well.
  10. This point always needs emphasis. Limetech accomplishes a tremendous amount for their size.
  11. @melmurp @muslimsteel You might want to consider raising an issue over at https://github.com/netdata/netdata/ where the developers of Netdata and the Docker container reside.
  12. Unfortunately I am not certain of the answer to that. Maybe by reading up on docker (via their official documentation). Basically any data that would normally be persisted by docker is stored in the docker image on unRAID.
  13. @exdox77 Did you ever get your traefik setup sorted out?
  14. I am not 100% sure but i believe the answer is NO. The Docker image is where containers (both running and stopped) store their internal file systems, as well as where docker stores Volumes (both the intentionally created and those created by images having volume directives that are not mapped to a bind/mount by the template. Docker Images are also stored there as well as other things used by the docker daemon.
