It is hardware RAID controller that presents SCSI, but has SATA disks
LSI Logic MegaRAID 6.62 254 commands 16 targs 7 chans 7 luns
But surely that is the point of hardware RAID - the OS only needs a
minimal clue that it is happening for administrative purposes.

IDE RAID in software is rock solid in my experience, as much as software
RAID ever is (i.e. write some crap to one disk only and wait for the
crash ;-). Indeed I've always found Linux software RAID stuff remarkably
resilient given the "quality hardware" usually thrown at it.
How did the server die? How was it configured?
