For what it is worth, with even more than the usual precautions, the SSD vs HDD boot disk comparison:
Interesting to see these statistics develop.
My average SSD age is with 4 years higher than Backblaze :-) no...
I have a DS220J with 6TB drives (i.e. a mirrored pair) - it's set up with straightforward default installation/set-up options (I'm new to all this). I use Linux Mint on a couple of PCs and I've installed Synology Drive Client 3.0.1 on both. One is a desktop with a 2TB drive and all is well...
Just to share some SSD experiences:
Next week, my first two SSD (Samsung 850 and a Sandisk Ultra) will pass the 30K hours. They are in a SHR with a later added Samsung 860 that has 8000h on the clock.
Life estimation is still 96% at the Samsung 850 and no issues so far. These three are still...
I'm having trouble re-using/formatting what used to be cached SSDs for my 415+ after the 415+ died.
I have 2 500gb SSD which were used in a cache rw which i had been using previously with my synology 415+. It's like both ssds died at the same time. I've tried diskpart recover/clear/activate...
The Q1 statistics are in. For the first time, SSD are included, In the first looks, SSD appear to be 10-20 times more reliable than HDD (with a clear note on lifetime of the drives).
interesting read, but take the usual...
Hi, I’ve got a DS1520+ (5 bay) with 5 x 4TB HDDs, and 2 Samsung 970 Evos as cache. I’ve just attached the DX517 expansion unit and installed 5 x 10TB HDDs in there. Unfortunately I made the mistake of simply expanding my original storage pool and consequently, the new 10TB drives are now only...
Anyone used the Sabrent Rocket 1TB for NVME SSD Cache? - Rocket SSD | Sabrent
Just reading a review on it and the 1TB has a TBW of 1665.... not sure in my searching i have found a consumer ssd with such a high number (Sabrent Rocket 1 TB M.2 NVMe SSD Review).
Good Afternoon SynoForum, I arrived at work this morning to a slew of email alerts because of this:
It's a new one on me, the second ssd is not accessible here or in the storage manager app, despite saying it is at 100% health. My question is has this happened to anyone here?
I presumed that this would be an easy forum question:
But I guess not! :ROFLMAO:
Looking for the current thinking on SSD RAID levels. I've been running 5 SSDs in SHR-1 / BTRFS for quite some time and recently migrated them to a new NAS, giving me more drive bay options to play with...
Just read this:
Toshiba already at 20% market share in HDD.
More SSD sold than HDD
Are their any issues running a pure SSD volume and a pure HDD volume on the same NAS, or will the presence of an HDD volume drag the SSD volume down to spinning rust speed?
Storage Pool 1 / Volume 1 = SSD-only array
Storage Pool 2 / Volume 2 = HDD-only array
Good day all -
I am a new home-user of a Synology DS720+ and I am reaching out in hopes to find recommendations about configuring SSD cache.
My current set-up and use: (2) 4TB HDD Seagate IronWolf drives in RAID1 and (1) Seagate IronWolf 510 M.2 SSD configured as read-only cache. The NAS is...
As a Christmas present to myself :p, I've ordered a DS620slim with 3 x 4TB WD Red SA500 SSDs in order to retire my DS216+II as a backup NAS. I'm really looking forward to the almost-silence and the performance gain, but am a bit unsure on how to configure the volume. Let me...
So long story short: I have a DS920+ with 4 SSDs in. All of them are 1.92TB. I am using SHR.
One of the SSD died for the 3rd time so I will replace it.
I don't have another SSD right now but I have a 16TB HDD. Can I use it to repair the Storage Pool and then remove/deactivate it so it does...
I got yesterday a new SSD (Iron Wolf 110) and I used it to expand my Storage Pool. Yesterday after the installation was fine and was working properly.
This morning I arrived in the office and the Syno was beeping and I got an error that the new Drive failed.
I have a Synology DS920+. When...
I’m thinking of buying a couple of NVMe disks to use for cache in my DS1019+, and wondered what other people’s experiences are with them?
I remember reading in the past that cache disks on DSM6 don’t (or didn’t) work particularly well, but should be improved in DSM7. But it was quite a while...
I'm new on here and have purchased a DS920+ and awaiting for it to be delivered so i thought i'd get the rest of the upgrades that i need in the meantime.
Just wanting to buy 2 SSD's for Cache and was looking at the Samsung 970 EVO Plus 250GB M.2 NVMe and was wondering if anyone could...
Tomorrow I should receive the Ironwolf 110 SSDs for my brand new DS920+. In the specific I will receive 4 SSD of 1.92TB (so a total of 7.68TB).
Which kind of raid do you suggest me to do? Our goals are performances (we are a small business with 7 employees) and a good backup solution (this...
We are an advertising agency with 7 employees and we would like to switch to a NAS System from Synology, in the specific the DS920+.
We mostly work on InDesign and Photoshop/Illustrator files and sometimes on some video animations (so no 4k videos).
According to our budget we can...
