I think the point is that RAID is not a substitute for backups. That does not 
imply what backup technique to use. Making Backups to another server that 
also uses RAID is absolutely reasonable IMHO. We do just that around here.

However it can not be stressed enough that just putting RAID-1 or RAID-5 into 
a server is not a substitute for backups.
