I've seen too many software raids (x86, any linux 2.4; never tried 2.6
anymore) corrupt the files under high load, so I trust them less than I
trust a single USB harddisk. Once we even had a commercial 7k$ raid here
for testing, which was based on linux software raid. After two hours of
copying files NOT EVEN A SINGLE FILE had the right md5sum. The
salesperson who watched us became very quiet ... needless to say we
didn't buy it.
