XServe RAIDs are definitely hardware RAID. What you get is a 3u box 
with 14 drive bays. There are 2 RAID controller units, each 
controlling 7 drive bays. Each drive bay is an independent IDE 
channel. There are redundant power supplies and cooling modules, & 
everything is hot-swappable. The only caveat I would mention is that 
the controllers are not redundant.
