Why not just go with Raid 5 since it has the best protection in terms of harddisk failure and cost effectiveness. If you want speed and  can afford it you can go with Raid 0+1 where 0 means stripping across multiple disks for speed and 1 for mirroring this Raid 0 set to a 2nd set of Raid 0 set.

Does the OS need to be on a separate raid or can the application and the OS be on the same raid (prefer raid 10). Its our production application, so its mission critical.
