Recommendation Volume MSA 2012sa ESX 4.x

I have a MSA 2012sa with 7 hard disk of 300 Gb. I wonder what you make me recommendation to create a vDisk (Raid 5 or Raid 6) (two vDisk with four Hard Disks Raid 5 and three Hard Disks Raid 5, and create two volumes for VMFS) or (one vDisk with seven Hard Disks Raid 6, and create multiple volumes for VMFS).
Thanks

Hello,

One thing to be aware of is that fact that the vDisk is owned by the controller - and not the volumes.

If possible create at least two vDisks and balance between controllers.
