Move off Synology 1019+ docker install

Hello I’m running 1019+ with Docker running home assistant, node red and mqtt. I have sky connect going but want to get off Synology (USB issues we all know with synology)

I have a pretty good Intel nuc not in use that I can use to run home assistant.

Is the best recommendation just to run home assistant OS on these dedicated NUCs? I am fine installing ubuntu myself and running docker there again but i like the idea of a dedicated machine for HA.
