And if they die, there is nothing you can do but trying to get exactly the same controller again. Hardware fails and it's just a matter of time.

Software RAID may be not everyones darling, but it is reliable. The performance heavily depends on your setup (and it's not a good choice if you need many IOPS). 

And by the way: I really like LSI and some other RAID hardware manufacturers, but what I even more like is having a choice. ;-)

Regarding Proxmox doesn't support Software RAID (and I still wonder why).

Little point, raid cards are superior, more reliable and faster and cheap.

Proxmox does not officially support software raid, however if you do a manual installation it is possible to configure and use software raid.

We have done this on occasion.
