    Exclamation ZCS on Synology DS x86

    Hello,

    I have a DS411+II with dual-core Intel Atom CPU and 2GB RAM on board.

    I want to install Zimbra on it, but I don't know how, since there is no Synology OS in the download list.

    I'm pretty sure it's some type of distro-Linux. Are there anyone here who could point me on the right path of how to install it?

    You need to install Zimbra on one of the supported platforms, anything else is not supported.

    In theory, you could install zimbra on DS411 from source packages, but it would kill the performance of the fileshares and the performance of zimbra itself would be so appalling that you REALLY shouldn't do that.

    Question WHY? Did you try?

    Why is that? Have you tried it to install on yours Synology? Which model do you have?

    I actually have 2GB(not 1GB) on board of DS411+II(it's somehow differs with CPU from DS410 and DS411+).

    Performance shouldn't be affected unless it's something different I don't know. Why is Zimbra gonna be so terrible as you've said?

    Your performance will be bad, because atom is weak cpu, and 2Gb isn't that much memory for zimbra, especially since there are other services running on synology aswell.
    Zimbra just loves memory:


    You'll be better off by running it on a real computer instead.

    I belive you. But it's not that bad. Intel Atom 525(Dual Core) - is the one of the most powerfull CPU through the whole Synology line.

    As for the 2GB - hm.. I gess you are right, it's not much. But not that bad too, since originally Synology DS 411+II goes with 1GB.

    Besides Web-server and Zimbra - I'm not going to run any other services on my Syno(excluding those standard).

    Having set that.. Would you please, help me with any information as for the installing ZCS open source?
