Keep in mind, that you cannot simply አስገባ the memory module while the DS918+ is at work. The ሂደት is to first, power ወደታች the DS918+, slide out the drives, and then insert the memory module. That said, it is very highly recommended that you upgrade the RAM to 8GB, especially if you are someone who uses a lot of heavy-duty applications.
Powering the DS918+ is a quad-core Intel Celeron J3455 ማቀናበሪያ, መዝጋት in at 1.5GHz. It’s fast enough to run most of the applications on the NAS directly, but it is advisable to pick a single task for this NAS and stick with it, such as ፋይል sharing, VPN, etc.

As a dedicated ፋይል አገልጋይ, the DS918+ does pretty well. If you choose an RAID5 configuration of four 3TB WD Red drives, you should expect read speeds of around 148MB/s, and write speeds of 112MB/s. These numbers get a boost when you አንቃ the SSD read/write cache by installing two M.2 SSDs into the bottom of the unit. Once installed, you can create a cache with just a few clicks, and once the check has completed the DS918+ handles the rest.
One of the best uses of DS918+ is surveillance. if you’ve got compatible IP cameras on your አውታረ መረብ, they can easily be added to Synology’s Surveillance Station app so you can ተቆጣጠር them and save any required footage.

Another aspect we tested was that of VMs. The DS918+ does support the መግጠም and use of VMs, but when you start piling on the complexity, the DS918+ starts to sweat. However, if you are using the VM in a very minimal capacity, you should expect some silky-smooth performance.
“ሳይኖሎጂ” DS918 + እንዲቆይ የተገነባ ጠንካራ የ NAS መሣሪያ ነው። አዎ ፣ የ AED2,300 የዋጋ መለያ እና ተጨማሪ የመንዳት ዋጋዎች እስከ አንድ ሊሆኑ ይችላሉ ቢት በሥራ ወይም በቤት ውስጥ ከባድ ግዴታዎችን የሚጠቀሙ መተግበሪያዎችን የሚጠቀሙ ከሆነ በጣም ጥሩው የረጅም ጊዜ ኢንቬስትሜንት ነው ፡፡
