Hard Disk Config for Virtualized OS's and Storage

Question to the Experts.

We are small business under 50 and can only afford single server so no replication or SAN. Plan to visualize 4 instances of Windows Server 2012R2 (1. Domain Controller, 2. Exchange, 3. RDP Server, and 4. Misc. App Server)

The server is configured for 8 x 2.5"  SAS Drive bays.

Should i use 2 bays RAID 1 for the OS's and 6 Bays for Storage? Or, a single RAID 5 for the works??
