What sort of peripherals are you using and what has been their benefit? Sharing such things would certainly be helpful...

We use a raid5 config, which in itself has been very helpful. With proper striping, we can lose an entire drive with no data loss. Simply replace the drive, set the array re-configuration and the full array is setup again within hours.. Now, if you lose 2 drives, things get a little more hectic and youre needing to recover from backup - but - thankfully you dont see 2 drives fail at once very often :) (darn, im pretty sure I just jinxed myself - off to fret over my hard drives now :) )
