Hi, I'm a professional photographer and movie junkie using all Mac/Apple ecosystem.
Just moved to a new home with 10GB Ethernet and want to buy a NAS to keep in a storage closet. Need to keep the NAS running quiet and cool. Also trying to modernize and move away from spinning hard drives.
Of my 8-10TB needs, about 4TB are image files ranging from 50MB to 2GB which I'd like fast access to. The rest are media files for deeper storage.
Wondering if it makes sense to go with an all SSD solution? Or a system with SSD for main storage and HDD for Backups and Slower needs?
I was also considering a NAS with Thunderbolt interface for times I wanted to connect directly, but I think with 10GBE I'm going to have plenty of speed. (I'm NOT trying to edit video!)
Would like your current 2021 opinion about QNAP vs Synology. My experience in the past with Synology tech support has been horrible, but with QNAP my experience was excellent.
Thank you very much for your time.
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?
I am a multicam video editor and just recently purchased the Synology DS1819+. My plan is to create a RAID 10 with 8 6TB drives for my work files. I will be creating another RAID in a Mediasonic Pro Box for backup. My system is a PC with ASUS X99 PRO motherboard, Intel Core i7-5930K CPU @ 3.50 GHz with 64MB RAM, running Windows 10.
I would like help in comparing the performance boost of the following:
1) M.2 SSD adapter M2D18
2) 10GbE add-in card
Thanks for any information you can give me, or point me to articles that will address my question.
