We use only raid 10 or raid 6 in dedicated where need high security and data safety

Also very good utility is aufs ( advanced multi-layered unification filesystem), they enable drive's .

But also use raid + lvm if we nee fast speed + safety.

It really depends on what the service is, normally however we tend to see software raid 1-10 mostly used.
We really like software raid for the most part as it's been solid for us throughout the years.
Hardware raid 10 is the other options we tend to see often with BBU.

Software raid does allow for hot-swap. I have personally tested it.

I use software raid 10. Its simple to set up and reliable. No chance of a raid card failing.

I would like to clarify that with software raid there is more to it than just adding the hard drive. You still have to partition it and then add it to the array. It only takes a few minutes to do that.

+1 Raid 10 if you don't care about the "wasted" space or raid 50/60 if you need the space. If you want to go with software or hardware depends on your budget and preferences

Its depends upon your requirement, if you are looking for a good write speed and read speed and do not need redundancy, you can go with RAID 0. You can check it with RAID calculator.

Always recommend h/w raid because its has its own BIOS to manage its functions so OS do not need to spend time for it.

RAID10 is definitely the best option, keeping in mind fault tolerance in writing/reading speed.

In comparison:
RAID10
Speed gain - 4x read and 2x write speed gain
Fault tolerance - At least 1-drive failure

RAID1
Speed gain - Up to 2x read speed, no write speed gain
Fault tolerance - 1-drive failure

All of our virtual private servers are built with SSD drives configured in RAID10 for optimal performance.
