We used to run RAID-5 on a number of our machines, and ran RAID-50 on our ecommerce systems. Lots of redundancy. All was on a hardware RAID.

If I remember right, the Software Raids didn't allow a hot-swap of drives should something fail. I don't know if that has changed, but I remember that was a reason we went for Hardware RAID many many years ago.
