We used to do this using super micro servers. They had a 1u model that
would support 2 data disks and they had a simple hardware raid.

However you could probably use any system and software RAID.(heck even
windows does disk mirroring)

Not sure about the bandwidth/disk network but these days a pi and a USB
storage device you handle it at the 1gB size.
