Unraid is a Linux distribution that incorporates the ability to run virtual machines and docker containers while also providing a NAS environment. It is a paid product, but it is well worth the money.

I'm running Unraid for my persistent workloads, such as my Home Assistant setup, Pi-hole, Discord bots and other custom automations etc.

Because this server running 24/7, I've opted for a custom-built energy efficient server.


Using private registries

For personal applications, I use a private registry to store my docker images.

To use a private registry in Unraid, you need to authenticate with the registry. This can be done by running the docker login command on the Unraid server.

docker login
