What do you think about this point…

Context is important. The very first sentence mentions a "data center," and that's a tipoff that the article is targeted at businesses with servers.

Because the comment you highlighted is equally true of a user with a single traditional (spinning) hard drive: "The failure of the spinning drive can't be tolerated…"

For most users, the solution is to simply back up a Fusion drive just as they would back up any other hard drive.

If they need fault tolerance, then they need RAID. That's true for any kind of storage solution, whether or not it includes an SSD.

From the users perspective, a Fusion Drive is no different from a regular hard drive.
