This is not advisable. The more disk in your RAID10 the more IOPS you
get. LVM is also degrading your IOPS but LVM is required to be able to
make live migration.

Theoretical rule of thumb. IOPS in RAID is calculated this way:
read: sum of IOPS of all disk in the array.
write: sum of IOPS of all disk in the array divided by 2
