Solid QNAP NAS Build

by on Jan.16, 2019, under Hardware, NAS, QNAP

If you’re looking to setup a high performance NAS, I’d highly recommend checking out QNAP’s TS-873-8G-US NAS (On Amazon – http://amzn.to/2RYA1w9).

Is is compatible with the Samsung 860 EVO 4TB 2.5 Inch SATA III Internal SSD (on Amazon http://amzn.to/2FweVza). Using 6 4TB drives with RAID10 would allow for about 12TB of storage and with RAID5 you would get about 20TB of storage.

It is also compatible with the Samsung 860 EVO 2TB 2.5 Inch SATA III Internal SSD (MZ-76E2T0B/AM) (on Amazon http://amzn.to/2MeJw4V), which would yield 6TB at RAID10 and 10TB at RAID5.

To create the high-performance cache, you would want to use the following:
Dual M.2 PCIe SSD Expansion Card (on Amazon http://amzn.to/2TTJEZY)
and
Two x Samsung 860 EVO 1TB M.2 SATA Internal SSD (on Amazon http://amzn.to/2SZkNEe)

After Market SSD Upgrades

by on May.15, 2018, under Hardware

Unfortunately many computers shipping with SSD drives add an unusually high price tag for a mid-quality drive. We’re also seeing systems with relatively decent hardware, plenty of available RAM, and well less than 75% CPU utilization performing poorly. Putting a decent SSD drive into the computer greatly improves performances.

Here’s a list of drives that we update periodically, which have performed well in the field. You can view them on Amazon below:

Samsung 860 EVO 2TB 2.5 Inch SATA III Internal SSD (MZ-76E2T0B/AM) – (Amazon http://amzn.to/2APTyVL). Here’s a bundle with the mount for a desktop (http://amzn.to/2C6z375).

or

Samsung 860 EVO 1TB 2.5 Inch SATA III Internal SSD (MZ-76E1T0B/AM) – (Amazon http://amzn.to/2DnkUWZ). You can also get a desktop mounting bracket on Amazon http://amzn.to/2Djp4z1

The data migration software is free on the Samsung support site and it works decently.
