u have choices :
- u can set all your datafiles to fixed size. if some application will requre more space than allocated - it gets an error
- u can set all your datafiles to be autoextend. if some application will require more space than is currently allocated, file grows, until hit limit of OS dataspace.

However, you should remember that you are ultimately limited by the storage space on the server - the DBMS does not provide independent storage.  If you have a RAID which has a capacity of 120 Gb, then that is the upper limit of the starage capacity of your ORACLE (or SQL Server or...) instances.
