Synology DSM 5.2 Beta will run Docker containers

Synology DSM 5.2 Beta will run Docker containers

Synology have announced their latest beta this week. DSM 5.2 Beta now gives you the abilty to run Docker Containers natively.

This will be interesting for a bunch of vExperts, who use these devices. After I get vSphere 6.0 bedded in, I imagine that I will be looking at the option that this presents where I will be able to have a Docker implementation within the vSphere environment and play with the portability options by shifting them in and out of the Synology.


Thanks to Kendrick Coleman for tweeting out on this one, cos I’d seem the emails but not read them yet.

Unfortunately, having had a look at the Beta release notes, I am out of luck. Due to “the hardware requirement”, Docker will be only available on the following models:

  • 15-series: RS815RP+, RS815+, DS3615xs, DS2415+, DS1815+, DS1515+, DS415+
  • 14-series: RS3614xs+, RS3614RPxs, RS3614xs, RS2414+, RS2414RP+, RS814RP+, RS814+
  • 13-series: RS10613xs+, RS3413xs+, DS2413+, DS1813+, DS1513+, DS713+
  • 12-series: RS3412xs, RS812+, RS812RP+, RS3412RPxs, RS2212+, RS2212RP+, DS1812+, DS3612xs, DS1512+, DS412+
  • 11-series: RS3411RPxs, RS3411xs, DS3611xs
  • 10-series: RS810RP+, RS810+, DS1010+, DS710+
