From the Solaris-side perspective, ZFS is installed automatically as the root file system in rpool.
We generally recommend ASM when running an Oracle database if you want absolute best performance.
You could run ASM on top of ZFS for a non-rpool (data) pool for example. I think you would want
to present ZFS volumes to ASM. Considering using a small root pool and then a larger separate pool
for your data.
If best performance is secondary to your needs, then you might consider using ZFS without ASM.
