Per second? Per minute? Per hour? Per millenium?
Really, the surest way to let everyone know that your pulling numbers out of your *** is to give a failure rate without a time unit.
Because actually, there is a 100% failure rate for RAID1 arrays. After all, you don't think that the same RAID1 array is still going to be operational in 5 billion years when the Sun swells up to a red giant and engulfs Earth, do you? <rollseyes>
Come on, I provided a source for my numbers, you haven't - you just keep putting a "1/" in front of some random number in the thousands and saying that there are numbers out there.
