                Decades ago, I learned not to name my redo logs as .log.  The standard where I am now is .rdo.  This way no matter what type of file system you have they won’t be gotten by massive log delete.

Tim mentioned ASM... there are many benefits to it that are mentioned in the documentation, but it also adds protection to your database from non-Oracle people. A system admin wanting to free up filesystem space can't delete redo1.log if it's stored somewhere he doesn't know how to access.

Anyway, since you're building out a new environment maybe it's a good time to consider it.
