Creating an Oracle ASM Instance and Disk Groups

Oracle ASM installation consists of installing and creating an Oracle ASM instance and configuring the required Oracle ASM disk groups. An Oracle ASM disk group is a collection of disk devices to store data files that Oracle ASM instances manage as a unit. Oracle ASM instances mount disk groups to make Oracle ASM files available to database instances.
