Synology recommendation

I need to get a NAS that can contain 2 SSDs in RAID1 for concurrent file access.

Can you recommend an appropriate Synology device or other brand. Automated encrypted backups would be a plus. Thanks.

I use this one and have absolutely zero quibbles with it. Synology makes some pretty good packages that you can load in addition to the normal ones (Audio Jukebox, VPN server, etc). Very good and have no complaints about it so far; been using it for over a year. So long as your SSDs are in the 3.5" standard format, it shouldn't present any problems.

Re: Synology recommendation

you can get trays for SSDs and other 9mm drives to go into standard slots.

what's your use case for SSDs over normal disks? Noise/energy?

Re: Synology recommendation

I think the units have fans installed in them. I'd guess with the airflow you'll likely have due to not using full-sized disks, you may be able to disconnect it.

If you did not need RAID, I would have suggested a Slug (NSLU2) - old but good and no moving parts.

Re: Synology recommendation

I have two 214play with two regular WD Red drives that sit in their respective living rooms that are al-but silent. The flashing LEDs are more intrusive by a long way.

Re: Synology recommendation

Synology all the way. Costs a bit more, but the DSM software (and the long-time support), options and available packages cannot be beaten by any other brand (including QNAP) in my opinion. Make sure to get WD Red drives with it.

The device will be locked in a safe, so LEDs will not be visible. It is the heat build-up that is the concern.
