Buying new computer. Want to know fastest, best, and safest way to set up HDs. Currently at home i use OS on internal ssd and have 2 externals, one in raid 1 used for business and one 1tb used for personal.
Now on new business, what the best options?

Sounds like you have the right idea.

SSD for OS/boot drive. Crucial M4 SSDs have been good to us.

Put the the data on a business class NAS with RAID5/RAID6 or minimum RAID1 accessible via gigabit network.

We use ReadyNAS mostly as good combination of price/performance/reliability, though other brands do well also.

Keep in mind that offsite backup is a must, RAID is not backup. There are some reviews/articles on business online backup at
