Or, you swap the disks into a spare chassis which can be much faster.  The point 
here is that hardware or fake hardware raid will require a matching controller, 
where linux software raid will work on any machine with a compatible interface. 
  In the case of RAID1 you can use any single disk that still works - or even 
plug it into a USB adapter cable to access the data from a different machine.
