I seem to recall that (IBM?) demonstrated a RAID based on 1.8" CF based
hard drives. If they could get the amount of storage up a little (say
for each drive) then you could easily have a nice raid in a very small
space - if you had it mounted in such a way as to allow easy removal
then failures could be handled very easily.
