XPEnology 24TB/36TB Recipe (Check for Compatibility Issues)


Recommended Posts

I've been playing with some numbers and checking compatibility lists and I was hoping I could get a second (or third) opinion. I need something fast and reliable as an iSCSI target, and I've put together a recipe that should be compatible with XPEnology. My biggest concern is the RAID card and the integrated networking on the motherboard, but if anyone sees something I might be overlooking, please let me know.

Honestly I can't help you, but if you allow me to give my opinion, I would consider to get original hardware and buy DS1812+... it's just about 800-900€ , and you will have official support / warranty and system upgrades.


Despite XPEnology is great, it doesn't have support and still has some hardware compatibility issues. This is more oriented to home nas... and 36TB doesn't look like "home" :grin:
