NO ... AS1002T is Arm(HF) processor ... Virtualbox is for x86/Amd64/Intel64 processor : https://www.virtualbox.org/

Only but not provide, qemu can THEORETICALLY run ... but without hardware acceleration ... and need lot of tests to confirm possibility ... LAST 512 Mb of memory is very low ...
or using qemu-user or qemu-user static can help to run a unique program ... all is theoretically .

What is your target ... perhaps other solutions can exist ???

Hi.
The final goal is to launch a server written in Linux or Windows.
If this can be done, i would appreciate information on how to do this.

ps. Asustor does not use paging files for RAM?

Limited information ... so limited response :D
... if server is write for Linux
... ... check if they exist for armhf (real armv7l) architecture
... ... check if it's an open source server, so you can try to compile it to run in an Armhf (armv7l) system, this depend of the perquisites.
... if it's windows only ... forget it (except perhaps if it's a .net program able to run in mono or .NET core from Microsoft (T.B.C.))
... don't forgot to check the environment (Linux distribution) server run ... if A.D.M. is not so complete, tools like chroot can help you to run in a compatible distribution environment (ex. Debian or Ubuntu)

Depend of paging mode you speak about :
... if it's pagefiles like in Windows ... YES ... Linux (so A.D.M.) use swap file to put on disk memory block to free it for other usage temporary. just understand that memory management is different between Linux and Windows ... Linux is no monolithic ... and at any time try to put in memory all it can (file cache, buffers, etc.) ... so having all memory occupied don't said memory is full ...
... if you speak about "old" paging memory mode ... no Linux don't create a false map to cut in block memory for saving space without distinguish what are inside ...

Thanks for the answer.
I can start the server using Docker?
I tried to install it, but I get an error:

Hi,
I don't use docker ... because native don't add useless components, overhead and security breach ... with same possibilities ... I just want to be a customer not a consumer :lol:

So, please, wait up somebody using Docker ... come here to help you.

Hi,
@barsovya chrooting may be a good solution?
I just did that with Asustor with arch amd64, and it looks good currently...
Cheers
