I know Oracle recommends RAID 0+1 or 1+0 for OLTP systems (particularly for small, random writes) because of the RAID 5 write penalty. Does anyone have any direct experience or information on how big the difference is or how many concurrent users you'd need to have to make a significant difference?

Also, what do people think of the 'SAME' (stripe and mirror everything) methodology where you mash everything together in the same stripe?
