There’s a general theme to the questions that I receive about my Synology home lab NAS boxes. Mostly, they focus around how I use them for hosting virtual machines on vSphere, especially for those looking to construct a home lab to better prepare themselves for various certifications or practical, hands on experience. In this video, I attempt to further explain some of the answers to common Synology DSM questions as they relate to version 4.1. Additionally, I cover a few of my favorite features in DSM 4.1 and go a bit deeper into the configuration of my DS2411+ with all SSDs.
Looking for details on VCP, VCAP, or VCDX? You can take a look at the various new VMware certifications in my “VMware’s New Gauntlet of Certifications” post.
As always, if you liked this video and want to encourage me to make more of them, let me know by subscribing to my YouTube channel. Thanks!
