Why does Linode not provide RAID level details?
As per this post from someone at Linode, they are definitely using battery-backed hardware RAID, so I am not sure what competitive advantage Linode gets from not sharing the RAID level setup:
To clarify, I am not looking for the RAID details in the context of backups (I do know that RAID is not backup). It just seems a bit odd, given Linode's generally transparent approach to everything else, that they won't share RAID level setup details. I am genuinely puzzled, that's all.
