Software RAID is controlled by the operating system and device drivers to perform the RAID function (i.e. writing duplicate information to both disks of a RAID-1 array).  The OS knows it is working with RAID.  Using hardware-based RAID, the OS doesn't know that there is a RAID card sitting there that is doing the real work of striping/mirroring/etc, it looks at the array as a single drive and lets the hardware (RAID card, etc) deal with the details.

Is RAID only a fault tolerant for data or can it also protect operating system and Weblogic?
