If you had 8 x 128gb SSDs what raid set up would you run? More speed or reliability ? Run all together and partition them about?

Yeah I know, but lets say to run them all in raid 0. That is going to give you a Massive speed. However one drive fails and its game over.
How likely ssd fails? I know it has less chance than HDD.

Running in RAID0 would be very dangerous indeed and depends on your hardware and whether it supports hot spares

Personally I would use RAID5 if performance is not an issue or RAID10 if you need high speed. If you have multiple RAID controllers you could also split your disks into two separate groups so a controller failure does not bring all your storage down.

Unless you have MASSIVE IOPS requirements for a database server or something, I do not really see how 8x128GB SSD RAID0 would benefit you. If this is for a DB server, consider RAID 10 and not RAID 0. If this is for a gaming machine or something similar, just get yourself 1 nice large SSD.
