Time machine on my Mac takes care of most backup.  It has saved my butt many times when I modify some processing S/W I am developing just to have to go back to the day before since I hosed it up.

On my Macbook pro I have a Thunderbolt raid. It is hot swappable and that's where I store all my non-OS and applications code I'm developing and photographs. The nice thing about the Thunderbolt raid is they can be daisy chained. When my iMac dies or I donate it to my wife, I'm going to hook up a Thunderbolt monitor to the Macbook pro and use that as my main processor.

Along with back up you also really need to develop an effective method of documenting what is in your archival storage so if you want something - you will know where to go get it.

Backup is essential. With a raid you have two copies.  For long term archival storage - either install a archival system or use a service.
