What do you mean by raid between two servers? Replication of the raids? – pauska Feb 18 '10 at 15:41

No. Sorry, if what you are asking is "can I make a RAID array that is physically on two different servers." Your only option would be to make two different RAID arrays, one on each server, then find some way to make them appear as one for clients. For Windows, you can look at using DFS (Distributed File System) for this.
