EMM Database sizing

Level 5
about to implement netbackup 6.0 enterprise,
curious as to where to place netbackup install files, and EMM Database
proposed master server (with emm databse)

4 x 18 GB & 6 x 36 GB.
proposing to mirror 2 x 18GB disks for OS, mirror another 2 x 18GB for netbackup program files/EMM database, not sure if this is going to be enough tho
i understand EMM databas is calculated with amount of files * 50 bytes, or so, but in reality, how big will this database get?
we will be backing up around 6,530,337 per day, with about 10 Oracle databases (using oracle agents with RMAN scripts)

Our EMM Database is only about 250MB (logs/data everything) including BMR Database.
We backup about 4TB/day (mostly Exchange) and on the weekend fulls about 30TB.
We have a retention of 30 Days for most backups and our images catalog is about 60GB.

Hope that helps...
