Hello guys
Currently we're having 2x raid5 groups (3 disks each) and as expected the write performance is horrible.

We're looking for the best practice for raid with 6 disks which will be used mainly for Exchange, active directory and additional SQL based vm; all running on VMware vSphere.
Looking for good read/write ratio, and a single parity.
