RE: Multiplex Redo Logs with Mirrored Disks?

I disagree -=20

-multiplexing provides you protection against user error that mirroring
doesn't.=20
-Also, I have experienced bugs with mirroring hardware/software that
caused the mirror to corrupt data

Subject: Multiplex Redo Logs with Mirrored Disks?

Is there any need to multiplex redo logs with mirrored disks (e.g.,
RAID-1 or RAID-1+0)?
Example- Oracle recommends multiplexing redo logs on separate disks,
like redo01a.log on Disk1 and redo01b.log on Disk2, etc.

However, now that mirrored disks are in common use with RAID-1+0,
RAID-1, etc. it seems that sufficient protection is in place to use only
a single copy of each redo log.  This would also provide the benefit of
reduced disk I/O to write redo information to disk.

Anyone disagree?
