I think it really depends how much material you plan to shoot.

Lets say you would be cool with 4x 256 ssd's. Then you just need to backup all your ssd's
lets say to the large hdd (better yet on 2 hdd drives) and leave originals like they were shot.
I make 2 copies on separate drives on the set when i need to re shoot red cards so i have
1 backup if one drive fails.

I would get 2 thunderbolt adapters like talked in some threads and mac book pro with 2 tb ports and make copies on that.

just my 2 cents
