    Is it Reasonable to Swap Primary DS Volumes for Offsite Backups?

    A friend proposes to use a DS exclusively for archives and backups - including offsite backup. The DS has one RAID5 storage pool (4-bays, 4-drives). No packages or other applications - no SSD cache - very basic configuration - nothing but a handful of SMB shares - and, of course DSM. My...

    Two different volumes on same NAS ?

    Can volumes be hibernated individually within the same unit?

    I was planning on using my DS1621+ to set up two separate volumes: Volume 1: 2x 4TB SSD in RAID1 Volume 2: 2x12TB HDD as RAID1/SHR-1 The idea behind this setup was: - To have a noiseless SSD volume (aside from DS cooling fan) for frequent access of files on-demand without wait times for drives...
