Happy PI Day, everyone!
I'm going thru Grid/RAC setup for the first time. Finding the manual confusing when it explains how to set up storage.

This is 11gR2 on linux. The install guide indicates I will need:

assuming for normal redundancy

minimum 3 disks of 1.5GB each for Clusterware minimum 2 disks 9GB each for database storage and additional disk space for ASM metadata -- at least 3 disks of 2GB each.

Putting it all together -- Does this mean I need 8 disks minimum? or would some of these normally be combined?

Thank you in advance!
