Read the attached document

"HP StorageWorks 4x00/6x00/8x00 Enterprise Virtual Array configuration best practices white paper"

Recommended is adding disks in groups of 8 disks - vertical.

Some of the concepts for configuring EVA6000 you can find in new document describing new generation EVAx400:

"HP StorageWorks 4400/6400/8400 Enterprise Virtual Array configuration"

To be clear - Recommended is adding disks in sets of 8 disks - vertical. It is up to you, if you will create new DG or extend existing DG.
