Hi, I am thinking of getting the DiskStation DS918+ to act as my media repository and at the same time , backup the files in the media repository.. would this work ? Does the DS918+ have any apps that can backup the Media Repository to the Backup set of HDD ?

Or would I be better off, getting a 2 Bay Media Repository and another 2 Bay Backup as separate devices? Meaning get 2 units of DS218play , one to act as Media Repository and one to act as backup

All advise and thoughts welcome

Either way is fine.

Yes there is. You can explore hyper backup.

Based on what u have drawn, it looks more like RAID1 over 1+0? Also. Based on your diagram, i wont quantify it as backup. It is still raid with the single point of failure on the NAS
