That depends on the exact requirements. RAID1 has better write
performance than RAID5, but RAID5 is cheaper per gig if you need
loads of storage.
I tend to spec out RAID1 as a no-brainer for anything under about
500GB, because that's actually cheaper than RAID5 for such a small
amount of space. Beyond that, it's more of an art than a science
deciding what to go for. Usually somebody else has already made the
decision for you though.
