Oracle ASM Filter Driver (ASMFD) in Action

I have previously Blogged about configuring the Oracle ASM Filter Driver (ASMFD) using the command line and also the Oracle 19c Grid Infrastructure installer, if you enjoy this video you may want to visit the links above to help you get started.

If you’re still unsure or not had a good reason to use the Oracle ASM Filter Driver this video might help convince you otherwise. In this short demo I show a powerful feature of the ASM Filer Driver which allows you to release deleted Oracle database space back to your all-flash storage platform, which will be very much appreciated by your infrastructure team.

I am working on a separate Blog post where I detail my ASMFD testing, but until then enjoy this taster.
