Best way to setup an MSA 2040 storageworks

Last Modified: 2014-05-08
i am about to implement a new msa 2040 into the environment, and the question I had was should exchange be configured as RAID 10 or is Raid 6 good enough, the environment has about 80 user.

 I am assuming that SQL should be configured to RAID 10 for best performance.

file and print storage is also ok to be configured for raid 10 or is there a better solution or configuration.  

The current setup we have with an old MSA is vdisk setup for exchange, 2 for hyperV, SQL, Backups, Call recording, so a total of 6 vdisks.  Everything is at raid 10 and backups only raid 6.  

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
