About this deal

However, since the DSM user interface is very clear, this is not a particular hurdle even for a less experienced NAS user. This is all the more true because you can be introduced to the most important settings of DSM in a “quick tour”. The DS723+ comes with two free licenses for two video cameras, with the option to purchase 38 more licenses for a total of 40 supported cameras on one NAS. No boot option: You can't use these fast SSDs as the primary or the only volume of the server that holds the operating system.

As a photographer using Lightroom to manage my my photos, I still cannot understand why I need Synology Photos or S Video to manage them? DSM still supports a large number of 3rd party business services and platforms (SaaS and PaaS once, such as Office 365, Google Workspace, Hyper-V + VMware to name just a few) AND home/homelab ones like Plex, Docker, Emby etc. That said, Synology in recent years has been increasing its priorities towards first-party software and services.On the other hand it seems Synology is supporting older hardware a bit longer in terms of DSM updates, so I might stick to my 718+ a bit longer. The Synology DS723+ is a 2-bay compact and flexible NAS solution that can be adjusted and expanded as your needs change, with optional support for up to seven drives, faster networking, and NVMe SSDs for caching or additional storage pools. The network storage Synology DiskStation DS723+ is a NAS empty housing with two bays, which is tailored to the use in small companies and freelancers. I’m fed up with Synology’s cheating out on parts and charging tons with crippled systems, with no GPU/ HW encoding, dual cores in 2023, No built in 10GBe. Although the AMD Ryzen dual core Ryzen CPU is going to be a sticking point for those who wish a quad-core and/or integrated graphics CPU had been used (eg video conversions server side in Plex and the like) – the capabilities of the DS723+ NAS in it’s traditional performance, handling and throughput are better than they have ever been on ANY other Synology 2-Bay before.

Love how that every time I watch one of your videos there are more hardware and boxes in your office. Professional photo managementEfficiently back up and organize photos and videos with management tools for novice and professional users alike. I have been using this setup for a number of years as my total storage volume is not great but the I have a need for maximum reliability of data storage. The new AMD Ryzen R1600 CPU with AVX support processor boosts photo indexing, database response times, and web PHP response efficiency. NVMe SSD Storage Pool support, as (see gif below) at the time of writing, you can only use Synology’s own first-party M.

For comparison: With the 8GB file, the data rate drops to 175MB/s in writing and a good 166MB in reading. The new server is very similar to the DS923+ in processing power and hardware specs, as you will note in the table below. NVMe SSD storage pools, making the DS723+ NAS just the 2nd every Synology NAS to support this function (alongside SSD cache support of course) – though odd decisions on Gen 3×4>3×1 handling are still a touch puzzling. Let’s be honest, unless you have the need for server specific features such as transcoding or watch history sync across devices or other shenanigans, you’re going to have a hugely better responsiveness/playback experience on a dedicated device such as Apple TV, or other beefy SBC running Infuse, Kodi or the like. I found out that the Apple TV 4K also performs transcoding of 4K input to match the display it’s connected to.

I read many opinions online that some users face very slow data transfer from their PCs to NAS storage device or even NAS transfer to another NAS. Where possible (and where appropriate) please provide as much information about your requirements, as then I can arrange the best answer and solution to your needs. Synology seems to have the upper hand software-wise which I suspect carries more weight for a home user than the superior hardware of the Qnap? New: A brand-new, unused, unopened and undamaged item in original retail packaging (where packaging .I’ve already bought a Lenovo mini PC from 2010 with 6 core 12 threads Intel CPU and upgraded it to 32GB DDR4 RAM and installed Proxmox for my VMs, but confused whether to install TrueNAS or Unraid for Plex and shared drives. They only differ in the storage space they can hold, their network port speed, and processing power.

In the use case of a network drive, will the client have to do that indexing, if yes, how many weeks will that take? It seems like that APU would be a perfect fit for a NAS that is going to be used to decode and stream 4k video. In addition, there is a PCIe slot on the rear of the housing behind a screwed cover, which can be used to bring the NAS system up to multi-gigabit level via an expansion card. I currently use Dropbox but as you can guess thats slow and costs monthly, would a NAS be a easy and good alternative to that?I always use a UPS which uses one usb port, and I run regular local USB disk backups to ensure i have backup resiliency across cloud (I use Synologys own C2 backup and really rate it) and a local copy using monthly disk rotation.
