Dear Experts,

I have a Question about Oracle ASM technology.

(1). Is ASM a Technology, that can be used only with Oracle RAC?

(2). or Can ASM be used with Standalone Oracle Installation?

(3).  If yes, can send me any link to get more details about Oracle Standalone installation with ASM

Thank You in advanced,

1 - No, and ASM isn't required for RAC either, but it does make some administration easier
2 - Yes, we use it for hundreds of non-clustered databases
3 - ASM docs can be found here
