The Synology DS718+ is a high-end 2-bay NAS with good performance, silent operation, and low power consumption. Its strong advantage is that its storage capacity can easily be expanded with five additional drives (seven in total) since it is compatible with the optional DX513 expansion unit.

Btrfs also supports a maximum file size of 16 EiB instead of the 1 EiB in ext4
A decisive advantage, considering no combiantion of disks you can install (even with the expansion unit) gets you near 1EiB storage space :D
