Installing Confluence on a NAS

Hello together,

we are a small 3 person-company and thinking about a new way for our documentation.

So we find a QNAP TS-253B for our NAS Solution with an Quad-Core Intel® Celeron® J3455 1.5GHz (Burst up to 2.3GHz)-CPU and 8 GB RAM.

Is its posible to install a Confluence System on it?

So the Hardware requirements should fit.















Does anyone has experiences with this kind of combinations?

Are there any pitfalls for the installation? Is it fast enough?

Or any outher suggestions for the NAS which one fits better?


Thank you very much for you input :)

best regards

My translation tool wasn't good enough to understand whether the NAS has a supported operating system on it. Please see our Supported Platforms for Confluence.

In general, a NAS is network attached storage and usually has some proprietary file sharing software on it, so you wouldn't be able to install the Confluence application on it.

For further consideration, please review this knowledge base article on the subject of using a NAS with Confluence:

Is it Possible to House Confluence or Its Home Directory on an NAS Device Instead of a Local Drive?

You can easily do this on a QNAP NAS that supports containers. I just setup an Ubuntu LXC container and installed Confluence in it this afternoon with no issues.
