    We have a 2 x cPanel HyperV VMs on RAID 10 Sata Enterprise Hardware with 6 x 2TB disks on one server.

    Would changing it to the following be better?

    4 x 2 TB SATA Enterprise Disks for the /home folders of cPanel (RAID 10)

    2 x 250GB SSD Disks for cPanel OS and MySQL disks for those 2 HyperV servers, 1 SSD for each Server.

    Another reason is we getting these speeds from HyperV from inside the VM:

    dd if=/dev/zero of=/root/testfile bs=512 count=1000 oflag=dsync
    1000+0 records in
    1000+0 records out
    512000 bytes (512 kB) copied, 0.352809 s, 1.5 MB/s

    dd if=/dev/zero of=/root/testfile bs=1G count=1 oflag=dsync
    1+0 records in
    1+0 records out
    1073741824 bytes (1.1 GB) copied, 30.3307 s, 35.4 MB/s

    Should be getting higher speeds fro 6 x 7200rpm disks in RAID 10 on hardware raid with BBU writeback I'm sure.

    This might be a discussion better suited for over at WHT.
