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. If you want to see the full range of Brands doing tasks you listed these links underneath might be handy.
