SSD vs RAID

In the past the idea was to reduce Pr processing bottle necks by using 3+ HDDs in a RAID configuration.

With SSDs can we now skip the RAID controllers and put all our raw video and output video files on 1 SSD?

Or maybe have a smaller SSD for Windows 10 and CC apps and a larger SSD for project and video files?

A new system might include only 3 drives: 240MB SSD + 1TB SSD + 4TB HDD.

Projects can be processed on the 1TB SSD and when completed moved to the 4TB HHD for storage in case they need to be moved back on the 1TB SSD for further processing.

Bill,

To add to that the hard drives being used for backups and storage need not be internal. They may be "internal" drives that have been converted to external drives with USB 3.0 enclosures. That is exactly how I have my two 4TB Toshiba hard drives nowadays.
