Synology E10M20-T1 M.2 SSD & 10GbE Combo Adapter Card for Performance Acceleration
Synology has a nice line of NAS devices that are great for SOHO and SMBs. The only drawback is that midrange NAS aren’t typically built with maximum performance and network speed in mind. Thanks to a new add-in card, now they don’t have to be. With the introduction of the Synology E10M20-T1 AIC, users can get much higher I/O and bandwidth with one card. For bandwidth, the E10M20-T1 comes with a 10GbE port, drastically upping the I/O from a NAS that has GbE onboard. On top of the enhanced network performance, the card comes with two NVMe SSD slots for M.2 drives (2280 and 22110 form factors). This gives users high I/O performances and adds two NVMe slots for SSD cache without giving up to drive bays. That way users can load up their NAS with high capacity HDDs and still have an SSD cache.
