In the FLARE 26 Release Notes ( LINK ) you can find that Flare 26 now allows for the use of Raid 6, Active/Active support, and iSCSI replication for layered applications. Seeing 24 is end of life, that should be enough grounds for an upgrade, but the about features may be useful also.

Surely a look at the section marked "Fixed Problems" should be enough to convince you to upgrade.

This section documents all the bugs that have been fixed in the various flare patches.

Your array will be susceptible to any of these bugs if not upgraded.
