Drive Setup


I am seeing if someone can recommend the best setup as I am a little new to this field.

I have a StorageWorks MSA70 with 25 1TB HDDs.

What is the best array configuration. I thought it would to have all the drives in the same logical raid 5 but it shows warning about being over 14 drives being at medium risk.

I wanted to keep it tidy but other than splitting it 5 ways there doesn't seem possible.

The other is to have 12 and 13 drives in to logical drives?

Any pointers or suggestion would be great and thank you in advance.
