I would like to address Will's comment on the Synology painful rebuild time.
"But under an intensive load (4k+, multicam or too many users) or during any type of maintenance/drive rebuilds they've been a pain."

It is my opinion that the painfully slow rebuild time of a Synology is simply due to the fact that the default format of the Synology (when you first put in the drives and create the RAID group) is BTRFS. When you configure the Synology, and select EXT4 (which is a standard linux forum, that is used by QNAP and many others) - instead of the default BTRFS, your rebuild times will be in hours, not days - for a failed drive.

I just did a google search on this, and was shocked to find this Synology white paper on this very subject -
https://www.synology.com/en-us/knowledgebase/DSM/tutorial/Storage/What_was_...
"However, it is known that Btrfs RAID is unstable and not suitable for production environments. For this reason, Synology chose Linux RAID over Btrfs RAID. "
