I must express concern.  While RAID is very useful to keeping a system
running across disk failures that it is not a backup.  Even with RAID
functioning perfectly it is possible to have accidental file deletion
and other file mangling.  A known good backup is still required!
Having good RAID does not remove the need for a backup.  Operating a
critical system without backup is a scary thing.

Important enough to repeat.  A known good backup is still required!
