I have been running Homeassistant, Influxdb and Grafana together with some scripts on a Raspberry PI3 now for about a year and a half. As my config is rapidly expanding (about 90 sensors and 40 actuators) the system is starting to be very slow.
As a solution I have bought myself a NUC7PJYH which should be total overkill for Homeassistant. I now need to decide on the way forward. I have limited my options to the following:
- Install Ubuntu Server and install Homeassistant on that in a Python venv
- Install Ubuntu Server and install hass.io container in Docker
- Install Ubuntu Server, Portainer and install hass.io
- Do something else
As my experience with Docker is next to none, but I am willing to learn I would like to ask this community some advice on the way forward. My requirement is to be able to run Homeassistant, Influxdb, Grafana and in the future MotionEye. All needs to run on a headless NUC.
Who can give me some advice on the best approach?
