Optimal NTFS block size for Oracle 11G on Windows 2008 R2 (OLTP)

Hi All,

We are currently setting up an Oracle 11G instance on a Windows 2008 R2 server and were looking to see if there was an optimal NTFS block size. I've read the following:

But it only mentioned the block sizes that can be used (2k - 16k). And basically what i got out of it, was the different block szes affect the max # of database files possible for each database.

Is there an optimal NTFS block size for Oracle 11G OLTP system on Windows?

Thanks in advance
