Additional information:
Hello, I have a DS1821+ or DS1621+ with a 10gbe card install, and I am looking for the best driver setup to get the best performance. It will be for the home for backing up four computers a Plex media server for music and movies. I will be using it for Photo and Video editing. I will be installing two 1gb NVMe M.2 drives for the cache. I also have two 2.5 500gb SSD's and five 8TB drives. My idea is to get the best performance is to install the two 2.5 SSD and set them up on vol 1 and install the apps and run the VM's and containers on vol 1 and set up vol 2 with the five Hard drives. Last question SHR or no SHR for better performance? Would love to hear from others on this idea.
Option 2 all hard drives and two NVMe
Option 3 four or six hard drives on VOL 1 and two SSD on Vol 2 and point the VMs and containers to VOL 2.
