In the Oracle 10g release, Automatic Storage Management (ASM) was introduced, which provided a simplified way for DBAs to manage the storage of Oracle-related files. However, ASM did make maintenance of the files more complicated as the files could not be directly accessed using system commands. For the most part, this was not a problem, but it does hinder the use of another Oracle feature: transportable tablespaces.
