Time Machine Backups

Can Time Machine backup on an hourly basis not only the main hard drive but also an internal RAID 0 created from the remaining three drive slots? (Assuming, of course, one has an external JBOD array big enough to hold all the data.) This question actually relates to a previous query about RAID cards and sacrificing storage/performance for Raid 5 versus Raid 0. I'm thinking of using Time Machine to act as a RAID 5-type protective measure against drive failure. But I can't seem to find any articles about using Time Machine in addition to the main hard drive. I'm also curious if the actual backup processing time is truly invisible in the background and doesn't interfere with normal operation. Any thoughts or comments?
