How is the raid set up? Are you talking virtual raid, or using a physical raid array for storage of your VM?

To be honest, a virtual RAID5 made from VHD's will be pointless. I could possibly see a use for a virtual RAID1, but certainly not a virtual RAID5.

If your talking about the host machine and not the VM's, I would suggest a hardware RAID10 for running machines from and a hardware RAID5 for data storage. If your doing software RAID, then a RAID1 would be better.

What Linux distribution are you using? I haven't used Virtualbox, so I can't commend on that, but you should definitely try VMware, it may work for what you are trying to do.
