I just ordered a QNAP TVS-872XT for my first real 4K editing NAS for myself and my Assistant Editor plus Client workstation... Horay for me! (Looking for Bob Zelin's blessing!!)

Now the switch...should I just grab a QNAP QSW-1208-8C and be done with it? I don't think I need any heavy network management tools, this is a mom-and-pop operation. I currently have a little trusty 1gbe Ubiquiti Edge 10X, which I love, for wireless AP, smartthings automation hub and hardline internet access. Should I then add Ubiquiti's 10gbe equivalent ($670) to my rack then to keep management cohesive? I'm assuming it's all compatible anyway...

Lastly, should I ditch my 1gbe switch and just move everything to the new 10gbe switch or keep internet access, smart hub separate from my 10gbe network?

Would love everyone's thoughts and experiences...
