 Skipping RAID5

Short but makes some good points.

"Here's a paradox that we only realized recently: in some situations, using RAID-5 can be less reliable overall than using no RAID at all.

This comes about because while RAID-5 preserves your data over a single-drive failure, it loses all your data if there is ever a double drive failure. "
