unRAID 6 from Lime Technology is simply amazing

I’ve managed to play around with unRAID 6.1.7 from Lime Technology a little further and I cannot describe just how good this product appears to be.

The fact that you can install plugins, enable Virtualization (uses KVM) and enable/install Docker (and have access to a large number of Docker images). This impresses me so much. This software gives you so much flexibility in what a computer running unRAID can be allowed to do and perform.

While I do think a traditional NAS appliance still has it’s place in the market, if you want something a bit more, unRAID is certainly the goods in that department.

Below is a few screen grabs from my demo/test install which I am using a trial key/license.

unRAID 6.1.7 - Dashboard

unRAID 6.1.7 - Main

unRAID 6.1.7 - Plugins

unRAID 6.1.7 - Docker

unRAID 6.1.7 - Docker - Manage Docker Images

The way in which you can manage the Docker images when installed and enabled via the Web UI is simply amazing (as shown above). It seems to work so very well and a user with very little experience can be running these within a very short amount of time.

Highly recommend you check out the follow thread here on the Lime Technology forums on what community contributed Docker templates have been made available.
