For a multi tera byte storage, I would be more worried on ASM AU SIZE
than the LUN size. You will potentially pollute the shared pool with
default 1MB extents.  I would go for 8MB  extent side and there is an
underscore parameter to do that. Raise an SR and get the support
blessing before you change the _asm_au_size.
