Yup, my idea in the original post is about that. I think it's good as a
backup solution. I use it in a NAS (that is a different machine, devoted
completely to storage, not where the DAW is set) and yes, I'm using software
raid: it's an Ubuntu server. Anyway I can't see a problem in using RAID in
the DAW machine itself. It's goal is improving performance _and_
reliability. The only performance penalty RAID has is on seek times I think,
but is probably negligible.
