first of all, if you are reading this in time: Merry Christmas!
I’ve managed to destroy 3 SD cards in RPIs over the last year which seriously decreased the WAF. I have a relatively complex setup with lots of integrations, so performance was not optimal, even on a RPI4.
I decided to upgrade to a NUC with an i3-10110U, 16GB RAM and a nvme SSD. I took the NUC image with Home Assistant OS, it’s running pretty well.
Now I have another PI which died due to sd-card failure (Volkszaehler energy metering). I would like to dockerize this. I would like to avoid running another machine, as electricity is expensive in Germany.
a) is it possible to access HAOS to add docker containers on my own? I guess this is not recommended.
b) is it possible to put HAOS in a virtual machine on the NUC? Does anyone have experience with that, especially performance-wise? Which virtualization platform?
c) What are the downsides of installing HASS directly as a docker container? Is there an overview somewhere?
Any other insights?
Regards and thanks
