From Roon’s recommendations for running Roon on a QNAP TS-473, below, an optimal NAS configuration is:
- 1 bay with a small SSD (120GB, about $40 right now) for the Roon Server install and the Roon database
- 2 bays with 6TB drives, RAID1 (mirrored)
- 1 bay with 6TB drive for weekly backup off the mirrored set"
My question is, since the TS-473 has 4 HDD bays and one M.2 SSD slot, why waste a drive bay to the SSD instead of the M.2 slot? in which case I can run RAID 5 with the 4 bays with 4X6TB drives?
Or am I missing something?
