Synology NAS

We cover some details of configuring our Synology NAS devices running DSM7.2 here.

Multiple VLANs and Bonds

All of our Synology NAS devices use pairs of ethernet connections configured as 802.3ad LACP bonded interfaces. This approach improves reliability and enhances interface capacity when multiple sessions are active on the same device. DSM supports LACP-bonded interfaces on a single VLAN. This can be easily configured with the DSM GUI.

A Few of our NAS dives benefit from multiple interfaces on separate VLANs. This avoids situations where high-volume IP traffic needs to be routed between VLANs for applications such as playing media and surveillance camera recording. Setting this up requires one to access and configure DSM’s underpinning Linux environment via SSH. The procedure for setting this up is explained here and here.
