msa 2000 - disk number vs rpm performance

We are planning to buy a new msa 2000 g3 for the vmware infrastructure.  We have two options

- 6 x 600GB 15K rpm disks, 1 disk group , 1 vdisk raid 6

- 10 x 300GB 10K rpm disks, 1 disk group, 1 vdisk raid 6.

which one has the best performance?

thanks

Re: msa 2000 - disk number vs rpm performance

IMHO more disks will perform better. Also a RAID 5 (RAID50 in this case) will likely perform better.

Hope this helps!
