It occurs to me that all the talk of raid solutions seem to revolve
around the assumption that it is a drive that has failed (ie the
controller card is still available)

There is a distinct possibility of a hardware raid controller failure,
if you don't need sheer throughput then software raid has a lot going
for it. It allows the array to be rebuilt on another machine
independent of the controller card.

Just a thought.
