You cannot replace Backups with a RAID system...a RAID system is
just fine to help you in cas of a hardware failure, but if a disk
driver/user/hacker goes wild you are in big trouble 'cause the data
is gone on all disks.  I had the very same discussion in many
companies; the MBA guys try to tell you there is no need for a
backup (Backup is essentially an unneeded "loss center" for them)
since they have installed a RAID system... ;-)
