No, it has been suggested though.

Is there not an option in the Manager to break off the software RAID completely (in other words, no RAID at all) and use the two disks independently of each other without RAID?

There is no such thing as mounting the second disc, the reason you don't "see" it is because one of the discs is mirroring the information to the other as a backup solution. The only thing you can do is change the raid config so that you can use both the drives and have full access to the space.

Seedbox Paradis: It would be nice if you could also write a guide on how NOT to use RAID and how to break off the RAID mirror and repartition the disks, and how to mount the second disk.

You can't, as it is part of a Raid.
You need to break off the mirror before you would be able to use the 2nd disk.

255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 91201 cylinders
Units = cylinders of 16065 * 512 = 8225280 bytes
Disk identifier: 0x40a740a6

   Device Boot      Start         End      Blocks   Id  System
/dev/sda1   *           1       89926   722330563+  83  Linux
/dev/sda2           89927       91201    10241437+  82  Linux swap / Solaris

Disk /dev/sdb: 750.1 GB, 750156374016 bytes
255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 91201 cylinders
Units = cylinders of 16065 * 512 = 8225280 bytes
Disk identifier: 0x0004b8ae

   Device Boot      Start         End      Blocks   Id  System
/dev/sdb1               1        1275    10241406   fd  Linux raid autodetect
/dev/sdb2            1276       91136   721808482+  fd  Linux raid autodetect
/dev/sdb3           91137       91201      522112+  82  Linux swap / Solaris

You can reinstall it in the OVH Manager with RAID 0 is you want, just manually select the partitions and add them as RAID 0.

It looks like you're using RAID mirroring there, I doubt you need to do anything, I'm sure someone has a better answer though.
