New NAS system with Raspberry Pi 4

Meanwhile I got a Raspberry PI 4 and built a new NAS system. Here I installed a Debian Buster Lite and connected a Seagate 5TB 2.5″ hard disk. (Picture shows a WD HDD as test system) With Samba I also have access from a Windows computer. The speed is very good. I can transfer about 75MB/s over the network. So far the heat development is eye-catching and is monitored it.

portainer.io

This month I have tried Portainer and I am amazed. It saves me a lot of typing on the console.

Portainer is a lightweight management UI which allows you to easily manage your different Docker environments (Docker hosts or Swarm clusters). Portainer is meant to be as simple to deploy as it is to use. It consists of a single container that can run on any Docker engine. Portainer allows you to manage your all your Docker resources (containers, images, volumes, networks and more) !

Here is the Dashboard

my new tablet

My new tablet I have meanwhile developed to an instrument with which I can do everything. Listen music with my Bluetooth Headset, edit private and business mails and Excel files. The external Bluetooth keyboard helps me a lot. The Bluetooth mouse makes the action with the device especially easy. With the pen I can write notes spontaneously. All in all, it’s really fun.

On my travels I can pack it all very small. Really great.

Virtual machine transferred into docker container

In my small “private” data center I transferred a virtual machine into Docker. Surprisingly, it was very easy. With these virtual servers, only web pages are delivered that are continuously called up by external visitors.

First, I created a docker file that rebuilds the “virtual machine” as a container and then the static web pages are copied into it. I deployed this container into my docker server. After short tests I reconfigured my FritzBox and redirected all accesses to this Docker container.

Really cool, it rocks.

DBeaver

I use the program a lot at work and at home. It’s really worth a recommendation.

DBeaver is free and open source universal database tool for developers and database administrators.

Free multi-platform database tool for developers, SQL programmers, database administrators and analysts. Supports all popular databases: MySQL, PostgreSQL, MariaDB, SQLite, Oracle, DB2, SQL Server, Sybase, MS Access, Teradata, Firebird, Derby, etc.
