I’ve been following NCP and its development. The 2nd batch Helios4 is about to ship and i’ll get mine, so i’ll be setting up my home cloud soon. I’m wondering about the (functional) differences between the docker version and the “bare metal” install. All i could find is the docker one (naturally) doesn’t run wifi. In particular i’m interested in these elements that NCP seems to have spend good effort on :
- SBC optimisations
- BTRFS snapshots / syncing (provided the underlying filesystem is formatted as such).
I’m also wondering about the performance hit of docker. Especially since i’m already planning to use LUKS disk encryption, as i understand an impact that grows with the amount of disks used.
Related -but subjective- one of the benefits of docker is easy service migration, is that relevant seeing one could simply run the NCP install script on a different device (and import the backup) ?
