This study aims to optimize servers with low utility levels on hardware using container virtualization techniques from Docker. This study's primary focus is to maximize the work of the CPU, RAM, and Hard Drive. The application of virtualization techniques is to create many containers as each of the containers is for the application to run a cloud storage system with the CaaS service infrastructure concept (Container as a Service). Containers on infrastructure will interact with other containers using configuration commands at Docker to form an infrastructure service such as CaaS in general. Testing of hardware carried out by running five Nextcloud cloud storage applications and five MariaDB database applications running in Docker containers and tested by random testing using a multimedia dataset. Random testing with datasets includes uploading and downloading datasets simultaneously and CPU monitoring under load, RAM, and Disk hardware resources. The testing will be done using Docker stats, HTOP, and Cockpit monitoring tools to determine the hardware capabilities when processing multimedia datasets.
