QNAP or Synology NAS to run my VSphere

I am looking at a QNAP or Synology NAS to run my VSphere setup. I currently have one host with internal storage but I am looking to setup a shared storage network. I am looking at the QNAP TS-932x as the unit so that I have room for expansion, ssd capability and 10 Gbit speed. Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated?

Yes TS-932x is one of the new releases from Qnap with virtualization in mind. The 10GbE ports and tiered storage functionality will improve IOPS massively. You even add additional 16 drives if you want to with expansion units (UX-500P, UX800P). This would result in 200TB of total raw storage. It is a good choice. Synology alternative would be DS1817 with on-board dual 10GbE and SSD installed in few of the bays. But I have to say Qnap is a leader in this subject.
