if your storage box can mirror the disks, then yes, it would be another layer of protection (against hardware failure). Ideally you'd want to have the storage mirrored in two different boxes and hardware that does that is somewhat expensive. However, you can probably move the DB to ASM (even if it's not RAC) and have ASM mirror the storage.
