Maybe it could work with high quality USBs/SD card.

a good strategy with LVM is not to put the system itself on it- since you
might have problem to recover it if you loose a physical volume -  but use
LVM for data

For anything in the long run reliability, there's no such thing as a good
hard drive (SSDs if you have ressources for the enterprise one) + raid 1
(or 6 or 1+0) + lvm + live backup + cold backup
