Hello Experts,

Finally I have ordered a DS1515+ NAS for Homelab, and now I need to decide which HDD to go for it.
I will be using NAS for vmware and hyper-v lab.
I have checked https://www.synology.com/en-us/compatibility/hd/DS1515+
went through some of the NAS drives and they are reasonable wrt cost. enterprise class are going to put a big hole in pocket!.
WD Red run at 5400 RPM, I believe this will not give much IOPS to satisfy the need to run multiple VMs.

with your experience  please suggest.
