I have been using docker on my Synology 918+ (with usb Aeotec zwave stick & usb zigbee2mqtt stick) for a while. everything works flawlessly. Last week end I tried the HassIO (VMDK) image on synology Vitual Machine manager and it also seems to work fine. Now I am wondering which one to choose going forward.
In theory, running home assistant container directly on docker could have a resource advantage as it eliminates the HassOS layer (virtual machine). On the other hand, HassIO makes it easy for addons. but I already have separate docker containers and they all work fine.
Also on HassIO the upgrade process is straightforward and restarts will take significantly less time than docker (apparently).
are there any other significant advantages/dis-advantages?
