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
-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.
1. disk slots
2. NAS memory
3. NAS cpu
Purchase slow SATA disks, and then use SSD Read and Write cache to enhance performance on the volumes.
