Thank you for reading this – may you have an advice on where I should look next. Would like QNAP or Synology solution that
– 10G built in or possible (PCIe lot)
– BOTH 10G eventually possible (I have SFP+ switch now and would go into Cat6 rj45 later)
– multiple bays
– M2 cashing nice to have
– both desktop or rack are ok.
I am not seeing it. 932X is good, SFP+ but no ability to use CAT6 later. 951x/963X, CAT6 included, can not connect it to existing SFP+ switch. 332X – no PCIE slot. 251b – has PCIe slot, no M2 cashing, and only two bays. 832X – has SFP+, has CPIe slot, no M2. why is it so hard to take the best features of 332x and 251b and create something similar that would have 10G + M2 cashing?
You may consider a Qnap 253be/453be/653be. It comes with a PCIe slot for a 2in1 m.2 cache +10gbe rj45. This card is compatible with any Qnap which has PCIe slot. If you can not decide between rj45 and sfp+ then you may get a Qnap 10gbe switch wich both ports. You can connect two different network connections and all devices will be able easily to communicate among themselves.
