u need server class, professional wont cut it.

u can use professional to create a ,irroed volumes on a remote computer but that has to be running server class.

um if u dont want server then u could go with a hardware raid.  raid-5 is faster in read operations but slower in write operations.

there maybe 3rd party software that may allow u to do it
but i dont know how well they work and their performance...

Okay, that's the answer I kinda' expected.  Who do I give the points to?  Any other suggestions for fault tolerance if Raid isn't an option.

Simplifying Server Workload Migrations

This use case outlines the migration challenges that organizations face and how the Acronis AnyData Engine supports physical-to-physical (P2P), physical-to-virtual (P2V), virtual to physical (V2P), and cross-virtual (V2V) migration scenarios to address these challenges.

You wouldn't want to use a software RAID. It is extremely slow even if you have 7200rpm drives. Blah!
