ES1640DC v2 unsupported SSD

Post by patrez » Wed Feb 06, 2019 11:54 pm

Is there any way how to use an SSD that is not listed here https://www.qnap.com/en-us/compatibilit ... category=1 ?

Our partner delivered to us 4 INTEL DC S4500 and we wanted to use them as read cache

Thanks

I only see (NL-)SAS drives certified for that unit ... so those SATA SSD drives might not work ...

try it

So you bought $6.5k box and want to mickey with unsupported drives. Really?
Qnap did toy with offering bridge boards for SATA drives at the beginning but decided against it in the end for simplicity.
Even though this box isn't active/active (where two port SAS drives would be needed), stick to the compat list.
