I plan to run it in a RAID 0 + 1 so it offers redundancy for single-drive failure but we get the performance gain from a striped array.

Better go for RAID 10 instead if possible
Same performance and storage capacity for the same number of physical drives, but a better survival rate in case of a multiple physical drive failure.

Good reading on this topic:

Raid for video editing has nothing to do with back ups.  We dont' care about backing up media.  Media can be reloaded at any point.

RAID has never been a replacement for back-ups.

RAID is all about performance and/or reliability of your disk subsystem.

Both correct. I don't care if my RAID array falls over on my desktop PC. I'll be annoyed because it's more work, but I won't have lost anything.

My file server currently protects me against 2 concurrent drive failures (soon to be expanded to 4) and as an absolute last resort if it all goes to hell, I have all my data on backup tape.

Some might say overkill for a home set up, but what else are you supposed to do with 10TB+ worth of data?
