  • Oracle ASM - Automatic Storage Management

    Managing storage is one of the most complex and time-consuming tasks of a DBA. Data grows at an exponential pace due to the consolidation of databases, as well as the growth of a business over time. Business requirements demand the continuous availability of database storage systems, and the maintenance window for storage is shrinking from hours to minutes. Legal and compliance requirements add even more baggage because increasingly, organizations are required to retain data for extended periods of time. (We know some sites that store hundreds of terabytes of active data for seven years or more!)
