Purchased Synology DS1821+ and 8x BestBuy 14TB WD drives to shuck. Now what?

I have toyed around with building a rack-mount or closet datacenter in my home for years, but never could convince myself to spend all that money. With the huge price reduction on these 14TB drives, I decided to buy the Synology 1821+ instead, 8x of the WD EasyShare 14TB drives that were on sale from BB, as well as upgrades in RAM and NVME cache for the DiskStation. I still have a few more days of stress testing left on the drives before I perform the physical shuck, but so far everything is coming along well. I currently have 10x (6-8TB) drives across two desktop machines with JMicron RAID controllers (in RAID5 configurations.) The majority of my media is game ROMs, movies/TV shows, and music, totaling around 35TB. I have never owned a dedicated home NAS box like this before, so this will be my first time managing a non-windows device for some external sharing.

Primary use will be for media storage/streaming. Although I have CAT7 cables running to the vital areas of the home, I do not own any 10GB network cards yet, nor do I think I have a need since there would usually only be one user accessing data from the array at any given time. I understand that this model DiskStation is not exactly stellar at transcoding 4k videos, so in the future I will likely add a NUC or some other external transcoder, and for now will just be using a laptop connected to the TV via HDMI, while reading the data from the network.

Secondary use will be as a dataserver for myself and parents, primarily to archive family photos, important documents, etc, as well as to allow them to download/upload these from multiple residences. Currently I run a FileZilla FTP server from one of the PCs for this purpose, but would be keen to migrate it to this DiskStation.

So my questions:
1: Does any of the above scream any obvious “NO’s!” from the /DataHoarder community?

2: Aside from taping the 3.3v pin (out of a sheer abundance of caution) is there anything else I should do to these drives before/after shucking but before placing them in the DiskStation? (Format, block size, etc)

3: After my first RAID0 and RAID1 arrays in the early 2000’s, I have solely used RAID5 and never looked back. Should I try Synology’s proprietary raid or another level, or is RAID5 still safe enough for my use?

4: Do you find the onboard firewall sufficient in the 1821+? I loathe the idea of changing current router/network settings.

5: What about the onboard FTP software? I would only have user accounts for less than 20 people total, with many never accessing the device, ever.

6: Btrfs, ext4, NTFS. The white paper for the DiskStation states that “internally” it supports Btrfs and ext4, while “externally” it supports those and other filesystems (such as NFTS that I currently use for most everything.) Has anybody had luck with the auto-checks/repairs (file healing) inherent with Btrfs and this device? Pros and cons?

I know this is a lot, and probably covered in other threads, but I feel a lot of attention is on these particular drives at the moment, so hopefully someone can help myself, and perhaps other lurkers out by tacking one or more of my questions.

-Thanks!

  1. For more than four drives I believe best practice is two-drive redundancy at least. I use SHR2.

    I actually have the same NAS while running Plex on a NUC11 to handle transcoding and tone mapping. It’s been great, even downscaling and tone mapping 4K hdr to HD sd, although admittedly it’s a spendy option.

    For data sync I use the Synology Drive software in both a personal and professional context. Has been very reliable since they updated it from the crappy CloudStation software they used before.

  2. what you should have done is researched all of this BEFORE YOU BOUGHT ANYTHING

  3. > 1: Does any of the above scream any obvious “NO’s!” from the /DataHoarder community?

    Buying all your drives from the same batch. If it’s a bad batch, the failed drives could quickly exceed your parity.

    > 2: Aside from taping the 3.3v pin (out of a sheer abundance of caution) is there anything else I should do to these drives before/after shucking but before placing them in the DiskStation? (Format, block size, etc)

    No need to tape for Synology. For other brands, it either works or it doesn’t.

    I’d test each drive inside the shell before shucking. At least run CrystalDiskMark and CrystalDiskInfo and make sure the numbers make sense.

    > 3: After my first RAID0 and RAID1 arrays in the early 2000’s, I have solely used RAID5 and never looked back. Should I try Synology’s proprietary raid or another level, or is RAID5 still safe enough for my use?

    I use SHR-1 or SHR-2 so I can replace the drives one by one with larger ones and quickly take advantage of the extra capacity.

    > 4: Do you find the onboard firewall sufficient in the 1821+? I loathe the idea of changing current router/network settings.

    No, put the 1821+ behind your firewall. Firewalls are better at what firewalls do.

    I don’t use ftp for the NAS, just Samba and SSH.

    I have no experience with file healing yet.
