RAID 6 question: 8D+2P vs 6D+2P

Question asked by Joseph Turbulencia on Mar 9, 2016

Given 450 (10k) disks at 1.2TB each, would there be a problem with using RAID 6 8+2 instead 6+2?  Doing so would use less drives for parity.  Is the additional demand on the controller so significant that it renders the 8+2 configuration not worth the while?
