After my initial upgrade to 6GB with a 4GB Crucial memory that lasted for more than 7 months with no problems, I've gone mad and upgraded the 220+ to 18GB 😁

It's been about a week now and no problems so far. I've never received any warnings even during the first boot after installation, it was immediately recognized.
I've ran the memory test and it passed (took more than 6 hours to complete).

Running DSM 6.2.4-25556 and vDSM 7.0

The model is Crucial CT16G4SFD8266.

Was there a need or was this more ‘because I can’?

Running vDSM 7 connected to a VPN and running Emby IPTV, download station and Docker on it. On DSM, I have our main Emby instance and my Docker containers that keep on growing in addition to the usual Synology packages. It was not absolutely necessary but with everything going on it, it will surely make a difference :)

The 1019+ is no longer my main NAS as I've set it up and allocated it to a project and I don't want to mess with it. So the 220+ is kind of my main unit now until I upgrade it. I'd like to go with something like the 1621+ but wish for transcoding, so I might wait for the next release wave and see what comes. I'll then try to consolidate some of the low end DiskStations (120j, 118 and the 216+ on it) and find another location/use for them.

I wondered if VMM was a reason as allocating RAM is one of the two things. Only thing being that a dual core CPU may object if overly tasked, I assume, unless assignment of cores is not exclusive.

Of course you're right about the CPU limitation. So far it’s manageable. But look at the bright side, there's an argument there for a reason to upgrade 🤣

Sneaky! Start drafting that business case ;)
