What nas to get?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

I required a small Nas a dual bay one will be more than enough for the application I was thinking to get a synology DS218+ but are there are other similar suggestions for a good nas. 

I need to run 1-2 vms tops and need it for centralized file syncing and backup.

Do the VMs have to do any real work like automatic compression or something? Probably some videos on running VMs on it is all you need if the hardware is good enough, if not you probably just want to run FreeNAS on a Ryzen PC or something

No automatic compression is needed. The only job I need it to do is backup and sync files basically a file nas and 1-2 windows vm to run a single accounting software 24/7.

Then it's probably fine, probably put a UPS on the NAS too

what exactly should these VM´s do, by running accounting software you dont mean someone will connect to that VM and work in this software in the VM itself right?

because that would be super slow especially on low end models.
