Maybe you’ve already read it in another thread, but I would like to finally switch to Docker!
Since even the PI5 won’t be enough for me in this context (I don’t want to just run one container), I would need a few purchasing decisions:
The server itself (I have enough space in a 19 inch rack) → What can you use to accommodate around 32GB of RAM, an SSD and reasonably CPU performance 24/7 in an energy-saving manner?
If I lose the header from the PI, I will probably have to switch from the HAT to a stick for Z-Wave.
Since the server cabinet is in the basement, I would like to outsource the stick to the middle of the house:
Do you have experience with USB over IP?
Or are there any concerns if I want to use a Pi1 or Pi2 for this?
Or maybe finished hardware?
I already mentioned that I operate/maintain my home automation for 2-3 buildings (currently in ONE OH)
I would then cleanly separate this again in Docker and start up several instances. But some rules are interdependent across houses. Is there something exciting about communicating between two OHs?
