10Gbit Question
on Apr 4, 2018 at 7:43:07 pm

We are currently using a Synology Diskstation on a Gbit switch and Cat6 cabling for shared storage and backup. We have recently moved to Adobe's Team Project workflow and would like to move to a 10Gnit switch and Cat6a cabling.

The question comes in on the device end. Since they are all Gbit at this point, will we see a noticeable improvement in transfer speeds overall. I would think so since they are currently competing for bandwidth from the slower switch. Seems a faster "traffic cop" would help overall.

Thanks,
Mark

your Synology better have at least 8 drives in it. You Synology MUST have a 10G card or you are just wasting your time. Doing an LACP on the four 1G ports to the switch will not do the job you need for this application.
Your switch should be an all 10G switch, from the Netgear XS series. You don't need Cat 6A cabling unless you are running further than 55 meters.

With the setup I just described (10G port in the Synology, 10G switch, dedicated line to each computer) - with a 1G connection from the client, you will get 100 MB/sec READ and WRITE. With a thunderbolt to 10G adaptor or 10G PCIe card, you will increase this bandwidth to over 600 MB/sec per client.

Without a 10G card in the Synology, and 10G switch (there are cheap ones out there now for as low as $599) - you are just wasting your time.
