I largely agree for data stored on the systems.

However, PCs and compatibles, have long had an issue /reliably/ booting 
across multiple drives.  Especially with a soft failure on the primary 
boot device.

As such, I find it much more convenient to have a hardware RAID 
controller for at least the OS boot files.  Then use all the fancy 
feautes like you mention for data files.
