NAS Recommendation

The QNAP is a good choice for apps and running lightweight VMs and containers. It also has dual 2.5 GbE Ethernet ports for speed and redundancy. You can upgrade the RAM if you want more capacity. The step-up Synology pick has a relatively fast processor, M.2 NVME SSD slots, and the RAM is upgradeable up to 32GB.
