Use Cache while array is stopped (or Docker or VM)?

Recommended Posts

New to unraid, still in my trial.


My requirement is I'd like to run certain services (dockers and/or VMs) while the array is stopped.


My concern is that "critical" services such as home automation, network management may be down for hours at a time if I encounter any issues where I need to stop the array for hours at a time to fix. These services would not need to be on the array at all (just a cache disk or unasigned device), I'd just like to run them on the same box.


Any ideas on what I can do?


1) Run docker when array is stopped

2) Run VM when array is stopped

3) Run Unraid inside a VM and run my other services in a separate VM or in the host system?


Or is this not a likely issue and I'm overthinking this?
