This model is really useful as primary Backup server for small group family devices (laptop, PC, ...) based on Synology Active Backup package, also for snapshot/replica and for Drive File backup (selected).
Tested. Perfect.

You can choose:
- JBOD (group of 2 disks) for final single volume. Then you can get really large space for backup. But you have to think about second backup space (another NAS or external disk), because you can lose partial or all data in this "bunch of disk". And it will hurt!
- RAID1 (group of 2 disks) for final single volume. Then you can get less space than in JBOD scenario. But you can get Redundant environment, when you will lose single disk you still have chance to keep data in second one. Then there is no need to waste time if SHR (for two disk its RAID1 also) or RAID1 = because in this case it's same. Also you need think for backup of such data to another environment. But the chance of lose the data is smaller than in JBOD.

It's my secondary Plex, Docker etc server with all SSD in there. Just need a bit more rum bump (to 16GB) and its practically 918 with 2 bays. Both 718 and 918 are the same for me in terms of their roles. Not a primary storage unit but very very capable.

I might jump into this when they update it (a 720+ perhaps) to replace my 216. I like having a single fan (noise wise).
