  1. I don't recommend AID0 on any machine. Little is gained from it and it can only lead to headaches later on.

    RAID 0 would probably slow access and decrease reliability slightly in a VM. If that's what you're looking for then go for it. I can't imagine that stripe size would make much difference.

    This assumes that you are using disk images rather than raw disks attached directly; that would be a fairly atypical setup of a VM.
