ASM is an integrated volume manager for storing Oracle database files - including datafiles, redo logs, backups, controlfiles and spfiles. ASM allows administrators to add and remove disks while the database is on-line and available to users. Data is automatically striped across all disks in a disk group, and is optionally mirrored.
