Storage strategy. RAID 1 or 5? Backup? Both?

Sorry if it has been asked before (I barely found a 2007 discussion).

Which is a *smart* - and *affordable* - storage strategy?

1) An external NAS RAID enclosure (QNAP) configured in 1 or 5 mode?

2a) An internal drive for data + an external (WD) backup?

2b) An internal small RAID 1 + the external backup?

3) The external NAS RAID enclosure + external backup drive? And in that case, how to backup data from an external raid system?

4) Other means?

A bit confused about which is best among the above options.
