Actually, if they paid for them, VxFS/CFS with VCS is better then ASM/CRS combination. Have in mind that ASM is not a fully fledged file system and it's much harder to copy files to and from ASM then it is to copy files to and from a file system. Also, VxFS has caching (and cache coherence, of course) so you will not grow old when waiting for scp to copy a file from a VxFS file system. I wouldn't throw away those licenses, far from it.
