the keyboard of Thomas Wouters:

Sadly, redundant hardware controlled by non-redundant hardware,
configured to be redundant without a backup of that configuration, isn't
all that reliable :(
It is hard to get redundancy correct and complete, so you can't just
hear the word "RAID" and conclude that it is reliable, or fully
redundant, without proper system management.
That's why I still recommend RAID 0 with appropriate backup procedures,
or RAID 1... but only if the RAID 1 is operable by removing the RAID
controller, and attaching the disks to regular controllers, and having
them be readable... sadly, many RAID 1 configurations do not permit that.

A protocol is complete when there is nothing left to remove.
