Personally, I don't use it as it adds more complexity to our environment.

We (by which I really me 'I') don't need to add any more complexity.

  • Additional instance for ASM
  • file management is simpler
  • storage admins have easy direct access to see what's on disk.

I'm sure there are some rebuttals to this.
