I would suggest software RAID1 partitioning is the best mirror that you can get for your drive.

I wouldn't look so much at the disk configuration but at the backup method if you want frequent backups.

We have servers with around 2TB of user data, and these are snapshot and backed up twice an hour in around 10 minutes per pass, but this isn't because of our RAID 10 SAS Disks or even RAID 10 SSD database disks, it's because we have an R1Soft backup server and that performs backups at the block level and not at the file level.

We find R1Soft great as it integrates with our DirectAdmin and cPanel servers and allows customers to perform their own restores, which saves us time and offers our customers value.

We've used other methods in the past, but found they were quite resource heavy on the servers, whereas R1Soft CDP seems to be very resource light.

Personally, I don't recommend raid at all.. Too many hardware complications, too many software issues, and it's just messy

As ughosting mentioned, there are alternative backup solutions. r1soft is good, but if you don't want to spend the $$$ for that, take a look at cpremote, which can do pretty much the same thing.

RAID 10 is suitable.

I don't like software raid. Starting to think that really RAID for the backups may not be needed that much as ughosting said.

RAID10 is the way to go for backup. It's the best combination of disk speed and safety. You need both for a backup server.

If its Backup server then defiantly RAID 10 as it will improve your backup time as well as Server performance.

I think RAID 10 only (performance + security)

If it is within your budget Go for Hardware RAID 10 with BBU

It all depends on what your trying to accomplish. For example how many drives do you plan on using in your RAID array?

The base requirements for the different RAID arrays would be;

RAID 1 - 2 drives;
RAID 5 - minimum 3 drives;
RAID 6 - minimum 4 drives;
RAID 10 - minimum 4 drives;
RAID 50 - minimum 6 drives; and
RAID 60 - minimum 8 drives

I would look at using a RAID 10 based setup, but again it depends on what your trying to achieve and your budget as well.

Looks like RAID 10 is going to be tried now
