I would just leave it as a regular filesystem - there's no real advantage to using ASM, and your sysadmins are no doubt more used to dealing with filesystems than ASM.

Subject: ASM - is it overkill for a small database

I am in the very early planning stages for a small database (Oracle 10g), probably no larger than 10 gb/200 users, probably running on a Windows server. Would it make sense to use ASM or is it overkill for an instance of this size?
