New to VNX suggestions for Pool/Raid layout

I wanted to start out saying that I am new to the EMC and VNX product line.  Here is what I have hardware wise.  I have 2 VNX5400's with around 90TB of raw capacity each.  Each of these units will be in a separate location for disaster purposes.  The disks are 600GB SAS and 1 TB NL-SAS drives.  We also have Fast Cache and Fast-VP.   We have 4 RecoverPoint Appliances where 2 would go in each location.

The most important app will be an Oracle DB that is used for Banner by the Universities ERP system.  What I am looking for is some recommended ways to setup the VNX's to get reasonable performance.  Any suggestions to get me pointed in the right direction would be very helpful.  I have a lot of reading and learning to do.

Hi Gary,

The best place to start your reading is the Best Practices guide, which I've attached to this post.

From there, you can come up with a draft layout. If you want to post it up, I'm sure we'd all be happy to assist in helping you come up with a solid design.
