Media Server NAS (Emby, Sabnzbd, Sonarr)

I already have 11TB in Drives. I have been running a Linux Server box with an FM1 A8-3850 since 2010.
But now that I am ready to upgrade, I am considering switching to a NAS. I run an Emby Server for my family. I serve up to around 3-4 streams at the same time. I also have SFTP streams that do not involve transcoding.
I have a Sabnzbd service running as well as Sonarr on the box too. I also have no-ip connected. I would need a NAS that can do all of this. It can be diskless as I already have drives.

There are 2 NAS options for you TS-453A (or 253A) and DS418play (or ds218+). But I would really consider getting 53A series. It is replaced by B series, but it all it means – you can get it at a better price. It will do anything you will want it to do. It also supports virtualization for Linux for more advanced users.
