RAID 10 uses even numbered drive sets, usually in 4's, so 4 drives, 8
drives, 12 drives, etc. Depending on how 24/7 self-managed you want the
array, you should plan for at least 2 hot spare drives for fail over.
So in your setup you could have one logical array made up of 12 drives,
with 2 spares, and one left for the OS. One consideration in striping is
the stripe size. Stripe size effects performance but also storage
efficiency. So you want to balance those factors in choosing a stripe size.
One last issue, is make sure you have enough cache on the RAID controller.
