OVM Best Practice

Does anyone have any best practices for storage presentation to OVM? We're looking to put an OVM cluster in . and our DBAs/Unix guys are looking for allocations as if its physical boxes - multiple LDEVs>LUNS to OVM> Disks on ASM per virtual machine

I'm currently standardizing on our ESX infrastructure:-


A dynamic tiering pool on VSP , T0 FMDs T1 internal disk and T2 from a HUS150 behind the VSP. I plan to create 4 TB LUNS to ESX and let the virtualisation team manage the  sizing at a hypervisor level , with  storage DRS being implemented


Was thinking of using a similar approach on the OVM virtualisation cluster. I cant find any best practices for OVM , only traditional ASM on physical boxes on the HDS site .


Any one have any thoughts/ recommendations?
