RAID 1+0 Fault Tolerance with SoftRAID 5

RAID 1+0 is an excellent fault tolerant configuration that also offers high performance. Usable capacity is 1/2, just as with a RAID-1 mirror (e.g., 4 X 4TB drives yields 8TB of usable capacity).

Anyone needing to greatly minimize the chance of downtime should be looking at RAID 1+0, since suitably configured with dual enclosures it can survive total loss of one of the enclosures.
