I have a question about a RAID6 configuration with (8) 600GB 10K RPM drives on a Dell PE330. The T330 chassis can accommodate up to (8) drives.
Phillip Elder suggested the following to a previous question titled "VM 101 Question!" Posted on 2017-11-15:

RAID 6 is just fine for a virtualization stack. Many questions answered here: Some Hyper-V Hardware & Software Best Practices.
Two RAID 6 logical disks: 75GB for host OS and balance to guest data (RAID 6 6x 900GB = ~3.5TB)
Once the host OS is in set up the second partition and once the Hyper-V Role is set up make sure to set the configuration and VHDX file setting to that partition.
I believe in order to setup each RAID6 logical volume it requires at least (4) drives. So, how does the above recommendation make sense. I am just trying to understand the premise.
Are we saying, setup each RAIbD6 logical array with (4) 600Gbs disks which would provide approximately 1.2TB of storage each. That does not make much sense to me if that is the case. Placing hyper-v os on the first logical disk use no more than 100Gbs of storage. Trying to make sense of this response.
I looked at the following article about RAID6 logical disks:
Can you please breakdown your response.
