Hello. I am putting together a NAS solution and I would really appreciate some input. This is a home NAS and would mainly be used for storage and potentially for Plex as well. That said my biggest concern is data transfer speeds. As such, I would like to put together a 10Gbe solution. I am looking at either the Synology DS1819+ or potentially the Synology RS1219+ (as that could be added to an existing rack I have) with the E10-M20-T1 to boost speed. Would you suggest the DS1819+ or the RS1219+? What are the benefits of going with one versus the other?
On Synology vs. QNAP videos it was stated that you can use different size disks with Synology but not with QNAP, is this still true?
How do you upgrade your QNAP RAID to larger disks? If you can't use various sizes do you have to rebuild from scratch?
This video (https://youtu.be/Lk0N0M5MLLc?t=340) shows that Synology Moments is supposed to play videos right in the app. But on both my Pixel 3 and my wife's S10e, when tapping on a video to play, we get prompted with a "select which app to play this video in".
We're both connected to the same server, so I'm wondering if there's a server-side setting that I need to change. I can't imagine that Synology would remove that functionality if at one point it did play videos, as shown in the video linked above.
Thanks for the help.
I'm looking around for investing in a new NAS to replace my current old one (a Seagate PersonalCloud).
I'm mostly interested in 2 aspects:
- must support Plex in order to be able to stream to my ChromeCast,
- I'm starting to dig into Dockers + Kubernetes and I would like a NAS that would be able to run few virtual machines. I'm not interested in running virtual machines to replace my laptop; I'm speaking only about docker containers / images.
I was thinking to something like the QNAP TVS-682 (most expensive), Synology DS-920+ or Asustor AS6404T (least expensive)
HDMI output for me is not a must as I'm not planning to stream directly to my TV, but it's a plus.
I would like something that would need no upgrade for about the next 3 years. Support for additional M.2 SSD/nvme is a plus.
Looking at the synology ds218+ vs Qnap 251d.
Purpose is to use as a simple back up and simple server.
2 adults and 1 kid in the house hold.
I will be using for accessing data from my workplace too...just word and pdf.
Will also be using for surveillance at home.
Sorry for the broad question, loving the forum and the YouTube video.
Appreciated. Cheers folks.
I currently have a Synology DS411+II 4-bay NAS and would like to buy newer, faster version. I have limited my options to the DS1019+ or the DS920+ (when it becomes available in the Netherlands).
Any recommendations about the better longer term option?
My business partner and I are building a music studio and would like to have a server in order to efficiently work on multiple computers (we will have two different rooms, each with its own PC, but projects will need to be accessed in each room). While we will mainly be sharing project folders, we would also like to stream up to 4k video as well as share audio samples, photos, and other miscellaneous files. We’re curious which NAS would best fit our needs! Any help is greatly appreciated!
I am considering moving from a desktop NAS (I currently have the Synology DS418play) to a 1U.
Honestly, I only use my NAS as a file storage box. I know it has a lot of capabilities and app support, but I am not taking advantage of that...
1U with 400mm depth limit, and 4 x 3.5" drives.
Looking around, seems like my 2 options are the Synology DS819 or the QNAP TS-451DeU.
1. Am I missing any alternative?
2. Both those 1U NAS are priced at $599 in the US. Seems like technically the QNAP is better. Anyone compared those 2 NAS devices?
3. Should I decide to splurge and move to 2U (still with 400mm depth limit due to my rack) - what would be a better alternative to the above, keeping budget reasonable? (I could not see anything for less than $1200 which is exactly 2x the price...)
After finding NAS Compares, I’ve Just got a DS 1019+, first thing I did was setup time machine backup from my 2013 MacBook Pro, followed the guides, Backup seems to Start ok, but when it gets above say 10gb, it fails and says I need to start a new backup, any ideas what’s wrong please ?
