The M2D17 dual M.2 SSD PCIe adapter
The M2D17 is a M.2 SSD adapter that allows you to add SSD cache capability to your Synology NAS without sacrificing any of the existing drive bays. In the past, you will need to allocate two drive bays if you need read-write cache. For a 5-bay NAS, you will be left with 3 bays for your main storage.
The M2D17 supports two 2242/ 2260/ 2280 form-factor M.2 SSDs from various vendors. Do check out the hardware compatibility list for the supported make and model.
