Noob - DSM 6.2 on GCP


Recommended Posts

Hi guys,

I’m new at xpenology and I would need to install a DSM on a google cloud platform instance.

is this feasible?

is anyone interested in helping me getting that up and running please?

Feasible, yes. Advisable, no.


You would also need to configure a virtual router to prevent the box being accessible to the world (meaning only accessible to you).


Why I say it's not advisable, well that's because of the nature of the xpenology project. We are in a greyish area and using material that you didn't pay for on a server that does not belong to you, well you see where that can go. Possibly google will not allow it and if they do and they notice it a later date they will shut it down without prior notice. Not to mention the cost as it also could be rather pricy.


Here is a report of someone who did. It's in French but basic enough for you to understand or use Google Translate if necessary:
