CloudBeaver is a web server (web-based) database management tool which provides a rich web interface. The Server itself is a Java application, while the web part is written on TypeScript and React. It is free to use and open-source. In this step by step guide I will show you how to install CloudBeaver on your Synology NAS using Docker.
