mentions about database engines aka storage engines. What all storage engines can be used with the Oracle database?


Oracle is not like MySQL in this. Like most other RDBMSs it comes with it's own built-in storage engine that cannot be exchanged for another.


For completeness, whilst Jack's answer is technically true, it is possible to use Data Cartridges to expand on vanilla Oracle offerings.

In fact, a company called CopperEye released a new indexing method (patented, now not available) utilizing this functionality. See this old press release. The patent makes for fascinating reading.
