Can RAID Systems Fail?

RAID promises speed and disaster prevention, but is it perfect? Viperlair look into this, as well as outlining some flavours of RAID.
RAID undoubtedly offers more data protection than non-RAID disk systems. However, the management of the disks and the data distribution across them can be complex. Complex redundant systems can suffer failure, most often not a fault of the technology used or the design of the array, but most likely because of its failure to correctly apply these systems which leads to a single point of failure causing disastrous data loss.
