Depending on the number of disks available I might even argue running
software RAID 10 for better throughput and less chance of data loss (as long
as you can afford to cut your avail storage in half on every machine).  It's
not too hard to setup on modern Linux distros (mdadm); at least I was doing
it 5 years ago and I'm no sys admin.
