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)

Old SAS Drives

It seems like it’s getting difficult to source SAS drives that are shipping with a variety of Dell servers (such as the one on Amazon http://amzn.to/2L9O5w8). Has anyone used a SAS to SSD adapter in a server RAID array?
