I disagree with Frank. I haven't had any problems with ASM and I find it much more convenient then raw devices. ASM is, essentially, an adiministration tool which helps you administer raw devices. You get all the speed of raw devices and no administrative overhead. You don't have to constantly ask SA to provision partitions in 16GB chunks for you.
