    oracle installation on new linux server

    user7320646
      Hi,

      I am new to oracle installation layout and will be glad to get some help.
      I have a new linux server 2.6.18-164.el5 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux and need to configure the disks layout for oracle database.

      the server has 6 local disks.
      2 disks for system.
      4 disks*300gb in RAID 5. (Customer needs)
      1 LUN based on EMC (500GB)
      1 LUN based on EMC (5.4TB) for Oracle Backup.

      The Oracle version is 10.2.0.5.0 64bit enterprise.

      I need the guru help understanding what is the best solution for this kind of configuration.

      Thanks.

          Well, first off, the best solution would involve oracle 11.2 --- seeing as how 10.2 is already out of support.

              Quantify best?

              Which metric measures best?

              Is low or high value better?
