Right now I have all my photos on my local drive using Time Machine to backup, but soon that solution will be impossible as I am running out of local drive space.  I also back up photos to a separate drive that I leave at my work in case of any fire at home.

My plan (after I get back from a 2 week Galapagos trip) is to transition to a Western Digital 4TB RAID ($290) and set it to level 1 (2TB mirrored drives) and put this on my Airport as a shared drive.  I will still copy to a separate drive to save at work once a month.

The Western Digital RAID set up to 2X2 TB sounds and put on the network sounds pretty good to me, though I think access might be slow if the networked drives are the main location for working.
