Does the DS1817+ support SAS drives?

Unread post by spyrule » Tue Feb 06, 2018 11:27 pm

Hello,

I'm going to purchase the DS1817+ NAS, and I'm looking at the hard drives I'm going to put in it, and the only question I have is if this device supports SAS drives natively (ie: take advantage of the SAS protocol), or does it only support SATA drives?

AFAIK it does not support SAS (aka Serial SCSI) drives, sorry.

Hi synology_ukman

I'm surprised by your answer, so to be more sure I went to the compatibility list. Here the DS1817+ offers the following TYPE options:

2.5" SATA HDD
2.5" SATA SSD
3.5" SATA HDD
M.2 SATA SSD

... so, if I understand correctly, there's no compatibility with SAS drives for the DS1817+ ...

Please let me know if I'm missing something.

Best regards,
Claus
