Thanks for reply I have Lenovo thinkserver RD450 i have 4 empty slots
Can i just add 2 more HDD's to empty bays and they will automatically become part of RAID 1 ?  or should i implement RAID 5 but if i have to implement RAID 5 how can insure that I don't lose any data.

Thanks for replying guys Raid 6 is the way to go but can't afford to lose my VM machines and data so I am thinking if I add Synalogy NAS and use windows server's 2012 r2 iSCSI target option so that's how I can increase the disk space I guess please advise

Do you still need further help with this question ?
No I have got NAS storage implemented thanks
I got Synology NAS disk station using it as iSCSI target which gives us around 12 TB with RAID 6
