I recently purchased another Synology NAS box and to populate it I ripped out the disks from 1 of the 2 Netgear ReadyNAS Ultra 4s I have. This then freed up the ReadyNAS I was thinking what to do with it. I remembered a blog article from a few years back about running Synology DSM on a ReadyNAS so I started to do some digging. I switched to Synology for its VMware vStorage VAAI support which the ReadyNAS didn’t have. The blog was by Migoo, but I knew it was some years old that I had to take his basic principal and update it. The hack is to use Xpenology to create a bootable USB disk, boot your ReadyNAS from USB and install Synology DSM on the ReadyNAS.

It works a treat. Just don’t try to update it using the normal method. Its all in the instructions.
Presented for my 8th Year at the UK VMUG Conference 12 weeks ago on all things automation. Always a big thanks to the VMUG team for allowing me to present. I brought my usual humour with me and even showed a prototype app I’ve been working on called Project Hermes for putting a UI to automation tools that use JSON or YAML files to send instructions. Anyway, my sponsors listed below coughed up a ton of prizes and in the end only 21 people entered my competition and most people won 2 prizes and some 3 as I had that many. However, if you missed out Vembu are giving you a 2nd chance by filling in a survey found by clicking >HERE<
Anyway big shout out to the sponsors who donated prizes to my sessions:
