Cost effective RAID or local storage?

I've added a BMPCC4K to my shop, as the main rig. Often in b-raw, and it runs about 610 Mb/s in that mode. Some ProRes 422 and LT of course. So the amount of media has jumped dramatically from the 150 Mb/s my older camera runs.

 

I've been running six internal drives, mostly SSDs, but ... that was for running with the 150 Mb/s workflow. I've got a couple projects now that are over 300 GB of media coming in. And more on the way.

 

I need a much larger local storage setup. It would need to be attached directly to my computer. I know a lot of colorists that are using Qnap and other RAID rigs to get both size of space and speed of read/write, and am curious what the folks here would recommend? I can either run USB3.1 or put another card in the computer, I've space for a couple more cards.

 

And I'm expecting that I will need to quickly archive projects even with a larger storage availability.

The Synology FS1018 supports 4 way Gigabit link aggregation out of the box, and can be upgraded with a 10GbE card. 

If you're looking to come in a bit below the QNAP price point, that's probably the most feature-filled option. 

Depends on how you feel about network attached storage vs thunderbolt. 

Both of these companies offer Docker functionality which makes it very easy to do offsite backups.
