    Whats the most important spec when running VMs on a NAS box?

    NucleusVM Novice

      I want to buy a NAS box for a home lab. Either QNAP or Synology or any of the other low end brands. I'll connect it to an ESXi server using iSCSI.

      What is the one  spec I should be looking for, so I would have adequate speed when running the VMs on the NAS?

       

      So far I was looking for "iSCSI write to target" speeds here

      Is this the spec I should be looking for? I won't have many VMs. Maybe 10 or 15, and they won't be really writing all the time.

       

      So what's important when running VMs on a NAS? What's the most important spec I should be looking for?
