I have question on RAID 10 array.

I have a physical dell server runing ESX VMware with 8 local physical disks (300 GB each)
configure as RAID 10 array.
The VM is red hat linux.

I assume that means there are 2 pairs of 4 disks since each disk is mirrored.

Oracle recommends having seprate disks for:

1) oracle system software
2) database files
3) flash recovery and backup files.

If all disks are configured as RAID 10 does not this mean that the every file will be striped against all 4 disks
and I can't really have one location for system software or backup files.
