The Synology DS411+II starts out very strong even with a single drive. This means you'll be able to start out with just one drive and still have good performance. As your needs grow more drives can be added to the system. If should be noted that single drive JBOD systems do not have any redundant functionality for your data.

 

In almost every test the DS411+II outperforms the QNAP TS-459. The RAID 5 results show a significant performance increase over the competing product. In RAID 6 both systems start to level off, but for the most part the DS411+II is still faster.
