Linux software RAID works quite well, but keep in mind that RAID will not protect you from accidental deletions, just disk failure.
@Don-Pezet has the right idea but I believe he wanted to say RAID-1 (mirroring) instead of RAID-0 (striping).
Keep in mind that you will lose the capacity of at least one drive when you deploy RAID.
RAID 0: Striping. NOT REDUNDANT. Great choice when performance is more important than reliability (video editing working drive).
RAID 1: Mirroring. Capacity of one drive.
RAID 5: Striping with Parity: Minimum three drives. Capacity of number of drives - 1.
RAID 6: Same as RAID 5 but with two parity drives. Capacity of number of drives minus 2.
RAID 10: Striping + mirroring. Capacity of number of drives / 2.
As Don suggested, RAID-1 is probably the right option.
Any properly paranoid shop will use both backups (protection from accidental deletions) and RAID (protection from disk failure).
