Hyper-v running SQL, Exchange and RDS Server

Hi there,
Creating a new Hyper-V server. OS installed on RAID 1. Client has 40 users, requiring SQL, TS and Exchange. Looking at doing RAID 10. Best to create a RAID 10 Array for the SQL, and Exchange, and separate Array for the TS, or put the whole lot on 1 single RAID 10? Thoughts?

@Mahesh
Single Parity = RAID 5
Dual Parity = RAID 6

Ya, that's right, Raid-5 can sustain only 1 disk failure

thanks for correction

according to my understanding Raid-5 would suffice requirement

We do not deploy RAID 5 under any circumstances anymore.

"Punctured Stripe" is a search that can lead to a clear understanding of the "why".

We've not experienced any issues with our RAID 6 setups (across as many as 24 2.5" 10K SAS spindles or SAS SSDs) plus we don't deploy SATA drives.
