Best RAID hardware/setup reccs?


All my photographers, videographers, filmmakers... what do you use to backup your stuff?

I'm to the point where my photos are getting out of hand and I'm starting to fill up hard drives with video projects. I've been looking at hardware to create a RAID. So far, I'm thinking a 4 bay system with 4TB hard drives and RAID5, giving me 12TB of storage and 4TB for the backup (I think that's how that's going to work?).

I'm a designer, professionally, but I'm heavily into photography and I just went back to school for film. I'm looking at a solid 9 years of archiving on various hard drives that I'd like to consolidate.

Any suggestions on brands you trust or setup?
