Installing Ubuntu Server On Synology NAS

Before we start the installation of Ubuntu Server to Synology NAS, you will need to download the Ubuntu Server ISO image from Ubuntu.com. As of the time of writing, the version of Ubuntu Server stands at 20.10, and the file size is almost 1GB.

Once the download started, you can log in to your Synology NAS’s DiskStation Manager (DSM) to install the Virtual Machine Manager from Package Center.

Synology SNV3000 Series NVMe M.2 SSD

Synology started out having its own brand of RAM for as long as I can remember. I covered them back in 2017. After that they went on to have its own brand of M.2 NVMe SSD (SNV3000), SATA SSD (SAT5200), and SATA HDD (HAT5300).

One of the reasons Synology introduces their own lineup of SSD and HDD is for compatibility. The SSD and HDD are optimized for use with their own Synology NAS with customized firmware. Also, when things go wrong, the users don’t need to contact different vendors. They can bring it all back to Synology.

Synology DDR4 RAM (ECC)

I posted about Synology DDR4 RAM last June, and at that time, there were only five types of Synology DDR4 RAM available, out of which only there is only one ECC SO-DIMM which is the D4ECSO-2666-16G.

With the launch of the Synology 21 series, Synology added two more ECC SO-DIMM to their range of Synology DDR4 RAM. There are the D4ES01-4G and D4ES01-8G.

Synology DiskStation DS1621+ Review

I decided to upgrade my slightly more than three years old 4-bay Synology DiskStation DS918+ to the 6-bay Synology DiskStation DS1621+.

Back in 2017, DS918+ was the flagship Synology 4-bay NAS and that was replaced with DS920+ in 2020. Also in 2020, the 5-bay DS1520+ got updated.

Using Synology Drive With Synology DiskStation DS220j

Synology DiskStation DS220j is an entry-level NAS from Synology targeting at users who wish to give Synology NAS a try or are new to the NAS world.
