Sorry, I don't know any good recovery services, but I can
wholeheartedly recommend RAID 1 disks via RAIDframe:

and also using Amitai's method of backing up via the mirrored RAID 1:

I've been using the "just use one of the disks as a backup" method for
a while now (got the disk enclosures from here in the
UK), and am one very happy bunny.

FWIW, the NetBSD-current pkgsrc bulk build machine is one of the machines
configured with RAID 1 like this.
