Oracle Single Node RAC - Oralce Clusterware Install

972657 Newbie
Currently Being Moderated
I want to install Oracle Clusterware to perform Active / Passive failiver for a 2 node cluster
I plan to use Oracle Single Node RAC for this and have Oracle Clusterware control the active passive failover.

However - I do not want to use ASM in any of my set-up.
We have a NetApp filer and are using NFS / NetApp technologies to control backups (Oracle snap manager).

Is this possible?
All the documents I have include reference to ASM
If I try and install Grid - I am also asked for ASM information.

I find ASM an un-necessary overhead given the storage we have and do want to use it,

Can anyone help?
