Oracle ACFS is a general purpose portable cluster file system build on the enhanced ASM available since Oracle 11.2 and benefiting from the existing ASM mirroring and striping leading to performance and fault tolerance. In the presentation you will look at the concept and the architecture of ACFS. You will see how to use familiar tools such as sqlplus, asmca, asmcmd and OEM DC to configure, implement and manage ACFS. The presentation will provide an idea for deployment of ACFS for Snapshots and replications. Being fully integrated with ASM, ASM views can be used to monitor performance and usage.
