Even with garbage collection routines on the more modern SSDs, TRIM is always better than no TRIM. That's all I was pointing out.
As far as losing redundancy, if they're considering RAID-1 versus RAID-0, then yes you lose redundancy in favor of speed, but if they're not looking at mirroring (or adding a third drive for RAID-5,) and thus losing storage capacity, there's really nothing lost at all.
That is to say, two SSDs sitting there with different mount points or drive letters are no more redundant than a RAID-0, if you're not manually synchronizing everything between the volumes. All you're doing is increasing the likelihood of losing all your data should one of the RAID-0 members fail.
And, generally speaking SSDs are so much more reliable than hard disk drives. Not to say it doesn't happen, but I've literally never lost an SSD, having owned seven or eight different SSDs and NVMe drives, while I have stacks of HDDs I've lost over the years. Stacks.
