SSD Cache Pcle v Sata?

I've just bought a QNAP TS 673 and want to set up a dedicated Plex server with 2 of the drives. - It has 4 WD Red Pro 6Tb and 2 WD Red Pro 8Tb I was thinking that using SSD(s) for cache acceleration might be a good idea as might a graphics card. Please can you advise 1. Will ssd's be beneficial for my usage 2. Is it better to use the 2 inbuilt M2 SATA slots or use a QNAP PCLe expansion which takes 2 SSD'slots and also adds 10Gb ethernet 3. What size SSD's should I use and how many 4. Is it worth adding a Video card and if so which do you recommend Thanks Martin

Tag Video files for easier search and File management ?

Hi! So I work for a small company and we just bought a custom Synology ds1819 in order to store all the video footage that we record. I'd like to find out if there is software out there that I can use in tandem with our NAS in order to log our footage in a way that we can bulk tag files, as well as have the ability to search let's say, "apple" and have all the footage we've tagged "apple" come up. Also if we'd be able to preview video files without having to download them, that would be ideal. I called Synology support and they said that they currently don't have anything like that, so I was hoping to find software out there that can do it instead. I just don't know what to even google to find this kind of program. Sorry if this doesn't make sense or if this is not the place to ask. Please let me know when you can, thank you!

Choice between DS218+ and DS418+?

Upgrading from a DS213se, 2 x 4 TB, 1.6 TB movies and 250 GB photos. Backingup to USB attached 4TB HDD. Based at home. Want to upgrade for improved speed and capcity to use as Time Machine backup destionation for 2 macOS laptops and a MacMini. Will also host files for two users, about 50 GB each. old DS214se will become backup to new NAS. Will plan on max synology RAM to protect warranty and new NAS drives. I expect that the process for migrating data to a 2 drive unit is different from a 4 drive unit. Need guidance on that process after purchase decision is made. Could do DS218+ with 2 x 8 TB drives or DS418+ with 4 x 4TB drives. Suggestions and comments? Am I missing an important issue obvious to a more expereinced user?

QNAP TS231P2 :How to clean up / format working old disks from RAID1 after replacing both? Ex by going 2x2TB->2x6TB?

Hello! I am new to NAS, so apologies. Let's say, I'd like to extend my current RAID1 in my Qnap NAS by replacing smaller disks with larger ones. 2x2TB - 2x4TB or 2x6TB. I checked qnap manual and understand the procedure "replace disk one by one" but it does not say in what state the old disk will be? I understand the data will remain there? What if I would like to resell them to a friend? I also have a desktop PC, do I need, after replacement insert them one by one to my PC and format/clean up them? Will any software be able to read them? Is it possible perhaps to do this procedure while they are still on my NAS? I mean, clean disk one, replace, wait for raid rebuild, clean disk 2, replace, wait for raid rebuild? Thank You and stay in good health during those awful times!
