Synology's DS 1819+ is quite the piece of NAS hardware, supporting an obnoxious amount of RAID varieties and can be specifically configured for just about any task you might want to assign eight SATA drives to, or 18 if you pick up the expansion kit. More important are the choices of PCIe NICs you can choose from, including a 10GbE SFP+ on PCIe 2.0 x4, a pair of 10GbE SFP+ or RJ45 on PCIe 3.0 x8 or a single 10GbE RJ45 PCIe 3.0 x4 card.
If you are looking for a NAS that can do just about anything you want, and don't mind paying around $1000 for the device, take a look at Modders Inc for the full story.
"Just like everyone graduated from IDE drives and AGP cards it is time to change how we use home and small office storage. Gigabit Ethernet is still very popular however, it is time to consider the next Ethernet technology. Yes, I am talking about 10 Gigabit (10GbE) enabled devices."
