It is quite common as a question, the answer is always the same, do not 
use the fake RAID.

How data are stored is unique to the model of the motherboard. If the 
motherboard fails, it will have the same model to retrieve data from RAID.

So using the Linux RAID software or true RAID hardware with a card.

In the case of RAID hardware, check which models are compatible with 
each other and buy a spare card.
