In this release, a data file can now be moved online while it is open and being accessed, even for data files in system tablespace.
Being able to move a data file online means that many maintenance operations, such as moving data to another storage device or moving databases into Oracle Automatic Storage Management (Oracle ASM), can be performed while users are accessing the system. This ensures that continuity of service and service-level agreements (SLA) on uptime can be met.
