we need help configuring our array for optimum performance as direct attached storage. We have a dual controller ex30. We have an Xserve with a four port 8gb fiber Card connected to the chassis. 2 ports on each controller. Right now we have have it configured as a RAID 60 array with 1 global hot spare on each side of the chassis.  In this configuration we are seeing approximately 1000MB per second writes and slightly slower reads.  We were hoping to see 3000 MB/s.

Is there another configuration of our luns to maximize performance?
