when you have a single cache disk which is overloaded with IOPS you have 
a problem you can only solve with more disks

without RAID in case of failed disks your storage space for cache goes 
down and if you would not need the cache size why would you configure it 
at all?

so *what* is the point against redundancy with improved performance?

the application layer by definition should not know anything about 
physical disks - that's job of the underlying operating systemd or SAN
