I understand why software modems exist. But software RAID?. It's exceedingly

No. The desire for RAID can come strictly for reliability. Speed is not always an issue. (Although I certainly want it ! :) )

It could also be desired strictly for the speed increase.


If you were doing it for the speed increase, then why would you be using IDE drives and software RAID? SCSI drives and Hardware controllers are going to provide much better performance.


If you are doing it for reliability only, then why bother with pseudo-hardware RAID controllers, just use linux's built-in software RAID. It's probably more reliable than the pseudo-hardware stuff.
