i am setting up my old desktop with my dual core 4gb ram with activated windows OS with total 2.5 tb space 1x 500gb 1 x 1tb 1 x 1tb = 3 hard drives. my desktop have only one lan connection. i am ready to give 2 tb of my hardrives storage. i have an very decent internet connection with unlimited bandwidth with 40 mbps speed with no static ip.
so i was going through all the forum and discussions but i still need your help in a simple language because i am not so good in computers.
my question is -
1) Do i have to remove my windows OS and use other OS just for using docker because i have read comments people saying it works good in Linux? or do i have to use virtual machine for linux OS? and do i need to install my OS in the hard drive where i am going to give out for storage (can you guys help me with installing docker)
2) Do you guys recommend me for using multiple node for two different hard drives with docker or should i start with single node first for single hard drives and if in future will it be easy for me to setup second node with single node still running?
3) i have only single lan RJ45 connection on my motherboard do i have to buy lan card for multiple node connection?
If you guys recommend me for docker or any other steps please help me with the link. Also help me with any precautions I should take while setting up for node or nodes. It will be very kind for your help and will also educate me in future. i am also learning on networking through different videos and blog can you guys tell me where should i start my basic in networking? i wont be able to reply you early as i am working guy.
Thank you …
