Check it out at https://poyu.co.uk/2017/10/25/synology-ds218-unboxing-and-8gb-ram-upgrade/ nothing fancy thought I post it here. If anyone is interested in seeing the DS218+, hopefully I crack it open to upgrade the 2GB.

Checkout how to run a docker benchmark container on your Synology
https://poyu.co.uk/2017/10/28/benchmark ... gh-docker/

Here is a snippet of the results
Synology DiskStation DS218+ (Intel Celeron J3355 @ 2.00 GHz 1 processor, 2 cores)

Synology RackStation RS815+ (Intel Atom C2538 @ 2.40 GHz 1 processor, 4 cores)

The Intel Celeron J3355 is faster than the Intel Atom C2538 in the single-core performance, due to only having 2 cores it slightly slower overall. The Intel Atom C2538 has four CPU and has a TDP of 15W it’s takes a 50% more power consumption level. The newer Celeron does well with just having a TDP of 10W, reduce power consumption lower heat output for near enough the same performance. Though there is a massive speed boast with AES for the DS218+, oddly both CPU has Intel® AES New Instructions

Here is the disassemble / tear down of the DS218+ to access the first SO-DIMM, by replacing the first module you can achieve better performance. Check out https://poyu.co.uk/2017/11/05/disassemble-guide-in-replacing-the-first-so-dimm-slot-on-the-ds218/

Hi,

I follow the step you gave us...but unfortunately, my 8Go RAM (the same one CRUCIAL 1600) is not viewed by Synology DS218+...:(
Any idea?
Thank you very much
Benoit
