[Solved] RS1219+ VS DS1819+
I am now looking at Buying a new Synology NAS I could go with an RS1219+ or a DS1819+ What would you go with and why? i will be maxing out the ram and buying 10GB FSP Cards for networking. I would prefer not to use QNAP since they do not support different sized drives. I Currently own an DS1819+ that I would transition to use for back up of the new NAS. I am Leaning toward an additional DS1819+ with The support for 32GB Ram and Higher Read/Write, and ability to add 2 expansion units if needed down the road. only sacrificing .3ghz and Rackmount.
Your thoughts are appreciated.
PS. I am aware of the power supply issue and always have a spare.
I am the Tech Director for A large church in CA, We record in 4K from our 8 camera system. So we need a good place to archive our services. Previously to me coming in they used bear hard drives! With no redundancy. And no cataloging.
Gotcha, so you want to use the High Availability feature of Synology or just a Shared Folder Sync or Hyper backup? If you want the possibility to use High Availability, you need two identical unit. We had two DS1813+ which I had setup with Shared folder sync for data backup. At first it was local, but I moved it to my home to get a remote backup of our server when we got a big 1Gb/s fiber connection at work (I had already that connection at home). We changed the one at work for a DS1819+ at the end of last year and it's stable. We are not using it for video though and I've setup the link aggregation for all 4 ports so, it's not gigabit speed, but since none of our macs use 10 Gb, I don't think it matters. Anyway, I'd be curious as to what you decide to get in the end.
