Oracle ASM

Hi Experts,
We are planning to deploy SAP on oracle
We have vitualized our environment using VMWARE ESX 5.1
For the database we are to decide whether to go for VMFS / ASM. It is learnt that from Oracle 11g R2 onwards raw disk is desupported
If we deploy on ASM diskgroups, will vMotion happen ? Are there any other issues ?

Kindly share docs/advice regarding the above issue as well as best practices to be followed

    Go with a 100% fully supported configuration per Oracle support's recommendations.

    Anything less puts your organization at risk.

    Ask EMC about vMotion ... but I'd be far more concerned with having a fully supported environment than the tool(s) providing the virtualization.
