    Can you tell us what controller they have used? It seems as though they haven’t felt it necessary to share that information within their specs sheet: http://www.synology.com/en-us/products/spec/DS414slim

    I would like to see how the array handles a drive failure when under load [testing OLTP workloads]

    Just a heads up about those drives – Looks like they are not running the same NAND that they were initially released with.

    Is this little unit good for hosting a few vms for a two node (whitebox shuttle) cluster??
    My lab is to study for official 2012r2 test and to better learn vmware for work, probably prep for exam after 2012 too. Or would I be best to stick to the + models. The SFF is just awesome

    Your setup is only as fast as your slowest component. In the case of an all flash array, the bottleneck will be your network, not the array.
