Soft RAID status in ESXi 5.5 system

About an year ago, I bought myself dedicated server with soft RAID:
http://www.soyoustart.com/us/offers/e3-sat-3.xml

And installed ESXi 5.5 (Update 3).
I'm using it to host few websites.

How can I find out status of my RAID?

I read few articles, that ESXi does NOT support SOFT raids. Only hard raids. Not sure, what that mean.

Looking at my vSphere client -> Configuration -> Storage -> Devices,
I see 2 hard drives with "Operational State" = Mounted.

Is it the only place to check status of hard drives?
Will I see proper state here, if one of HD will crash?
Any other place?
Any console command I can use to get additional info?
