If you're using ASM then Oracle recommends creating a minimum of 4 equal-sized paritions for each disk group.

You need at least 2 groups - DATA and RECO (recovery/flash recovery area). In addition, I create a third disk group called CRS where I place the CRS and Voting disk.

So in all I created 12 partitions.

For example 4 x 512M for CRS. 2GB total for the CRS disk group. Note that this doesn not need to be this large but I have plenty to play with.

Then 4 x 1024GB for DATA disk group. This gives me 4TB for the Data space.

Lastly, 4 x 256G for RECO disk group. This equates to 1TB for my recovery area which will hold archivelogs and other flash recovery components.
