SSDs are gaining popularity in enterprise SAN applications. There is one company that sells only SSD SANs. They claim each node delivers 50,000 IOPS and up to 24TB per node. Sounds cool but I am sure it is expensive. I think it only supports 10G networks too.

If you had a place to back up the date first, add a drive to the RAID, do a rebuild if necessary and then restore your backup, that would be an option.

If your NAS device allows it, you could switch to RAID6 and that two drive failure would have been no big deal.
