Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

from my experience, it is better to use Raid 1+0 (mirror) for SQL. it will respond faster when a query is ran. but since you have 3 hard disk, it will be a waste if you use only 2 HDD…

as for HDD failure, you can just plug it out and replace it. as for controller failure, you will have to power down the server to change the card controller
