Hi,

I have a Synology DS414 now (home use only) but would like to run
virtual machine manager, cloud drive (family use), web station (my public site), audio station (share with family) & other packages on it.

I have 3 questions:

*I think the DS1817+ would be a good choice to runvirtual machine manager, right (maybe somewhat overkill -4 ethernet ports whereas I only have 1 network-)?
*I' hope to run a:
-W2K16 domain controller
-sccm server with sql and
-windows 10
-virtual synology to host a website

Therefore 32 GB would be needed, that is supported? I did found a place to buy the ram for it

*I have 4 disks (Seagate Green 2 TB) in my current setup, the  DS1817+ has 8 so I could add 4 more ssd's to put my
vm's on (raid 0 for speed, then backup my machines via ?).

*Which config (I  know there is some caching possibilites)/SSD's would recomend?

The idea is to have my main storage on my 4 disks, then run an ssd cache on extra disk, then other 3 SSD's in raid 0 for vm's.

Any other input welcome.
