INTRODUCTION

The Oracle Grid Infrastructure for a standalone server is the software from ORACLE which provides system support for Oracle database including volume management, file system, and automatic restart capabilities. Oracle Grid Infrastructure for a standalone server is the software that includes Oracle Restart and Oracle ASM therefore If you plan to use Oracle Restart or Oracle Automatic Storage Management (Oracle ASM), then you must install Oracle Grid Infrastructure before. Oracle Software combines the two infrastructure products into a single set of binaries that is installed as the Oracle Grid Infrastructure home.
