comment xfs: writing to 17TB offset doesn't actually write it to specified offset
If you actually want to reserve 17TB of space, fallocate might help.

comment df reports 100% full filesystem, du shows only 25% used even though there's no unlinked file
Use a bind mount to check for files hidden under other mountpoints.

comment Securely shredding files
Your script does not overwrite the file even once. And even if it did, it would not be secure.

comment Multiboot USB with extra first partition
I have such a stick, with FreeDOS on the first partition which Windows also sees and uses as regular data partition. So it works fine and it's not a problem whatsoever. What have you tried, what didn't work?

comment What types of RAID does Linux support?
man md for starters. There are many more but that's the most common RAID solution in Linux.

comment SSD optimization
unix.stackexchange.com/a/80868/30851 unix.stackexchange.com/a/218083/30851 - and overprovisioning makes only sense if you decide against TRIM or if your filesystems are always full, otherwise whatever free space in the filesystem is your overprovisioning.

comment mdadm - Creating RAID1 on LiveUSB does not persist when re-booting
You'd have to parted the MD device instead of sda,sdb so the GPT backup will be at the end of the space provided by the RAID, thus before the RAID metadata at the end. Testing locally, mdadm (v3.3.4) seems to recognize such disks. But everytime you use a partitioning software on sda,sdb it will complain about GPT being the wrong size.

comment mdadm - Creating RAID1 on LiveUSB does not persist when re-booting
OK, so it clashes with the GPT partition table which, also has a backup at the end. At the very least you'd need a metadata format that is 4K from the end (or further away) but it doesn't exist so - it shouldn't be done this way, you have to think of another setup.
