Hi fellow XPEnologists!
I am currently an owner of a Synology Diskstation DS411 running DSM 5.0, of which I am very happy.
However, as I am getting a new fast fiber-connection to my home, I would like to upgrade to something that can serve web-pages such as Wordpress and PhotoStation a lot faster than the single-core ARM CPU of the DS411 can acheive.
Looking at the various DS models available, I've come to the conclusion that you would have to pay A LOT to get a 4-bay DS with an x86 CPU (which I think is what is needed).
Therefore, I stumbled upon XPEnology and saw that it can run an a HP Proliant N54L which is less than half the price of a, say DS413+. Also, I think it is slightly more powerful. Right?
Before embarking on this route, I would like to ask you with experience with XPEnology a couple of questions:
Will a HP N54L running XPEnology have all the functionality that my current DS411 with DSM 5.0 has?
Am I right assuming that the HP will be a lot faster serving web-pages, such as Wordpress and PhotoStation, than my DS411?
How would I go about transferring the content of my DS411 to the new HP?
What do I need to be aware of, before embarking on this route?
Thanks for any help you can get me!
