budget vmware iscsi/nfs NAS

Postby aristosv » Wed Apr 26, 2017 5:40 am


I am looking for a low cost solution for running virtual machines on a NAS system, while connected via ISCSI or NFS to an ESXi server. This is for a home lab, so I need to keep the cost low. Basically I need to find the balance between good price and adequate speeds.

According to this, DS216j has 112MB read and 98MB write speeds which seems good enough. But will these speeds be valid when using NFS of ISCSI?

Do you have any suggestions on which product should I use?

virtual machine concern random speed not sequential speed so j-series bad choice as processor and RAM not enough to keep up

DS216+II best cheap option
