A RAID-base NAS would definitely be a good option for expanding your storage and giving yourself a boost in both edit and render performance, but that will limit you to the speed of your machine's networking.

If your budget allows, I would recommend an Areca or Highpoint RAID card in your Windows box with a Sans Digital 6GB 4 or 8 drive SATA/SAS chassis. You can then add hard drives to your required capacity point (up to 24TB in the 8 drive array), and gain both capacity and performance that these RAID configurations offer.

If you'd rather not "do it yourself", many vendors participating here on Creative Cow offer disk array solutions that would be pretty much plug and play with your Windows editing environment and offer capacity and performance to take you to the next level in your efforts.
