Using My Oracle Support Effectively
Oracle Automatic Storage Management (ASM) provides a virtualization layer between the database and storage. It treats multiple disks as a single disk group, and lets you dynamically add or remove disks while keeping databases online. ASM greatly simplifies the storage complexities often associated with an Oracle database while increasing availability and performance of the database.

This note applies to the following versions of these products:

Oracle Automatic Storage Management Version 10.1 to 11.2
