Is is possible to install Confluence on a Synology DS210j NAS with perhaps ARM processor and 128MB of memory

I am trying to find out if it is possible to install Confluence on Synology DS210j unit, which is perheps running an ARM processor or do I need to upgrade to something like DS1010+, which is running Atom processor and RAM module can be upgraded. Confluence is not ment for a heavy use.

cat /proc/cpuinfo
Processor : Feroceon 88FR131 rev 1 (v5l)
BogoMIPS : 794.62
Features : swp half thumb fastmult edsp
CPU implementer : 0x56
CPU architecture: 5TE
CPU variant : 0x2
CPU part : 0x131
CPU revision : 1

Hardware : Feroceon-KW
Revision : 0000
Serial : 0000000000000000

Any comment is appreciated. Thank you in advance.

A small instance of Confluence (10 users) will still want to use ~300m of heap with light use. Running Confluence 4.0 locally, it's using 200m while idle and almost no content after a restart about 20 minutes ago. If the DS210j caps at 128m, you'll want to go another step higher and get a system with at least 384-512m. Since the system is designed primarily for NAS, Confluence will also share CPU time with the other features of the unit, but that overhead might be minimal and the processor may work well enough. This also assumes that the NAS storage is considered a local filesystem to apps running on the box.
