Storage system configuration also matters... We just rebuilt the entire Oracle database system at a client site and the main reason for using ASM was that client wanted to start using Hitachi Dynamic Provisioning and according to Hitachi tests ASM is pretty much the only good solution for it. We previously used UFS, but that very quickly pre-allocates the entire disk and makes Dynamic Provisioning useless.
