Qnap backup unit to existing Qnap NAS?

HI, Not sure you will get below message as I answered to my own question, not sure how the systen works here? So here we go again :-) Thanks your answer. WOW that is a lot of backup, I am planning to purchase the QNAP TVS-h1688X with 10x8TB or maybe 10TB drives and then Seagate IronWolf 125 SSD 4TB NAS Internal Solid State Drive, 2 x 4TB for cache and 2 x 4TH for special storage (probably surveillance) outside the Raid as I will delete these files when they get over 30 days old. Will also be installing a couple of SAMSUNG 980 PRO 2TB PCIe NVMe Gen4 Internal Gaming SSD M.2 (MZ-V8P2T0B/AM), unless you think that's a bad idea, can't have enough (too much) storage, can you? The backup unit I have planned on the QNAP TS-832PX-4G 8 Bay which I will put same size drives in as on the 1688 and the go from there. That have to be enough for starts :-) Not sure about this: QNAP Dual-Band Wireless PCIe Expansion Card (QWA-AC2600), will that interfere with the boats other wireless configurations. Would be nice to have a wireless connection for the NAS only to use for external units, smart phones, tables and TV's to hear music and watch movies/tv-series? For camera surveillance I will probably go for the Hikvision DS-2CD2183G0-I 8.0MP 4K (2 pcs as I don't know how the with cover will be, will need to have both port and starboard side covered), as I can also connect those to the chart plotters and use them to safely get the 60 foot catamaran alongside in a marina, not easy to get a large catamaran along side even with a bow thruster, so these cameras will be handy :-) Again thanks for your many answers, I know that you are probably very busy :-) Rgds Benny

NAS for Apple Photos replacement, currently using Dropbox?

Hi, I watched a lot of NasCompare videos already and thankfully most of them really in depth like no one else. Some things like the GUI of Synology moments, Synology photos and Qumagie was very helpful. Thank you! ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Although all that video, I still feel I need to ask for advice. My case is similar like most of your viewer do, but I'm in torn between Synology and Qnap. ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- My case: I'm looking for a place to store my phone camera photos and videos (iPhone X). Mostly take a lot of photos here and there, short videos, screen recording, screenshots when found interesting content. Because I do digital marketing service, so I usually keep them as reference for my future content. These day apple photos feature helped me a lot. ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- But due to limited space on my phone 256GB which fully used in 2 year, I subscribed dropbox to keep backup all my camera upload and to allow me to delete less accessed content. But this lead to another problem: - Dropbox cannot categorize it at all (except business plan), putting everything in a folder (more than 15000 files in it now, I cant even count it because the browse is having trouble selecting it all) - Accessing my camera upload in dropbox is really slow - due to the number of files in camera upload, the scroll never end and it so stressing to browse to even try to manually categorize it - currently used only 220GB in dropbox ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- I hesitate using Google and apple due the company is keeping to many things and have interest in AI. So I prefer not to use them to keep everything. ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- How big storage I need: - contains 120GB of camera files a year - migrate from dropbox file (200GB) - connect an old 3 TB HDD that I used in my PC (full of files like video) to the NAS, so I can access anytime (WD Red 3TB 2014) - move 1TB of files from my portable HDD (WD My Passport 4TB 2020) Is it possible to extract my Passport 4TB as one of the storage and buy another WD Red 4TB? ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Beside that, I have several other storage that would like your suggestion whether to connect it to the NAS or keep it portable: - 512GB M.2 2280 SSD (Team brand - currently in external SSD enclosure) - 240GB M.2 (Transcend Jetdrive was for Macbook Air internal SSD) ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Feature I need: - Live photos - photo map location to look photo I took on some place - photo categorization (screenshot, screen recording) - people identification - separate gallery access for several user (will be sharing with my brother, but dont want to get the gallery mixed) - backup from phone like dropbox - offsite backup for select folders (synology hyperbackup) - drive encryption or partition encryption like veracrypt - remote shutdown (WD My home cant do this even physically), because electricity can be shutdown for hours sometime in my town - separate folder for photos from different phone and camera - HEIC to keep the same quality from phone to storage (is it the case?) - subject identification ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- My question: A. what NAS do you suggest for the case above? B. In Synology website, only select models can do "Synology Moments", beside facial and subject recognition, can you explain more about it? https://kb.synology.com/en-id/DSM/tutorial/Which_Synology_NAS_models_support_the_image_recognition_feature_on_Moments C. if we use hyperbackup, do we can still browse the file inside from synology moments? D. What Raid do you suggest? E. I have been offered by DS412+ (USD 208) DS718+ (USD360), does it suit my need? ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Looking toward NASCompare videos, I actually prefer Synology, but the new synology moment made me hesitate due to the lack of maps view. ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Thank you and look forward for the advice

Need advise on hard drive choice for adding drives?

Hi, I have a Synology 1813+ 8-bay with 6 WD RED 3TB drives in a SHR-2 array. I've had it since 2014. I wanted to increase storage by filling the remaining two bays, and have been looking at 6TB drives to start the migration to a much larger array. Now I'm wanting to increase storage and was considering adding two 6TB drives in the open bays to start moving toward a larger array. I'm seeing a lot of discussion about the WD Red drives being SMR instead of CMR and also 4K vs. non-4K native drives. 1) My drives are WD30EFRX-68EUZN0. Do you know whether these in 2014 were CMR or are they SMR like the ones available today? (Seems like SMR was new tech in 2015-16) 2) What would be my options for increasing storage? Can I add to my SHR-2 array? Can I add two new drive in a second pool/array in the same NAS? 3) Should I look at buying a newer NAS (Synology or other) that might be better for PLEX video transcoding? Many thanks for your assistance Cheers

Best way to setup new DX517?

Hi NAS compares team, The storage space on my Synology NAS (DS1520+) is running out. That's why I bought an expansion unit (DX517). Now I saw your video on youtube called "Understanding the Pros and Cons of the Synology DX517 Expansion - Part I". Unfortunately, part II and III have not been released yet. (Hope they will in future). I am sure that you may would have answered my question in video part 2 or 3. Anyway, i want to strictly separate the hdd's / storage from the expansion unit from the storage of the NAS to prevent data loss caused by NAS or DX failure. For example if the NAS or DX Powersupply fails or one of them just stops working, the RAID will be damaged, because suddenly several disks disappear at the same time. This is why i want to separate them. Unfortunately, it is not clear to me how to set it up the right way. I am not sure, if i have to create a separate storage pool with its own volume(s) for the new disks in the expansion unit, or if it will be enought to simply add the disks to the existing storage pool and create a new volume within this storage pool? I think the second option (adding drives to existing pool and creating a new volume in there) will distribute the data from volume 1 and 2 which are in the same storage pool, across all HDD's (These in the NAS and DX517) and will not separate them physically on the Harddrives, right? Thanks in advance and kind regards Cedric PS: Hoping to see part 2 and 3 of your video "Understanding the Pros and Cons of the Synology DX517 Expansion - Part I" soon - really interested in it.
