If anyone is interested…

I grabbed a 4 GB memory upgrade for the DS220+ (for a total of 6 GB).

Crucial 4 GB Single DDR4-2666 SODIMM 1.2V CL19 (CT4G4SFS8266)
For about $18

Overall, the system feels noticeably more responsive (I’m running a few Docker containers, Emby and installed vDSM).

The server info (Control Panel > Info Center) now shows:
CD19B698-F57A-49D1-8296-FC25F3015661.jpeg

Running Synology assistant’s memory test ended after almost three hours with no complaints.
Checking the log, revels the following… I don’t know why three times. Triple assurance I guess 😁

Hi! I´ve just updated my DS220+ to DSM7 RC and have been waiting ages for a RC. I have like a billion photos and videos and would really like to use Synology Photos with face recognition. Are you satisfied with your Crucial 4 GB Single DDR4-2666? Synology prefered their own version.

Thanks @WST16 🤩(y)

I´ve just installed the memory on my DS220+ and it seems to be much happier.
I tried Synology Photos Facial Recognition and it was quicker than ever 🥳:coffee:

That's great. I'm glad you're experiencing enhanced performance for your specific use case 🙂
Adding memory is like adding butter when cooking. You can't go wrong 😁

Some are reporting 16GB (for a total of 18GB) is working fine for them. I think Synology says 6 and Intel says 8.
This Reddit thread explores some of the options.

If I may ask, which 16GB memory module did you use? Would you mind sharing that with us.
-- post merged: --

I ask this because I intend to replace my DS916+. The only thing I have in doubt is between the DS220+ and the DS920+.
I have two options for myself in terms of configuration, which are;

Option 1
DS220+ (Will be my main NAS also for Docker and VMs)
1X 1TB SSD
1X 4TB HD
1X 16GB extra memory

DS 916+ (for Docker and VM testing and as Backup NAS)
2x 2TB HD
8GB Memory
(This is currently my configuration of the DS916+)


Option 2
DS 920+ (becomes main NAS)
1x 1TB SSD
2X 4TB HD
1X 16GB Extra memory

DS 916+ (becomes test NAS and backup)
2x 2TB HD
8GB memory

A disadvantage of option 2 is not only that it is more expensive, but also that I have 2x 4 Bays. And I am currently only using 2Bays of the DS916+. That leaves 3 Bays unused.


Disadvantage of option 1 is that I don't have raid anymore for my data as main NAS.

What do you guys think?
