Linux's existing choices for volume-managing filesystems (VMFs) have been limited to two choices: either ZFS-on-Linux, which has licensing issues; or Btrfs, still seeking wider adoption. Stratis aims to deliver equivalent features and ease of use as a VMF, but with a hybrid, layered approach that builds on Linux's strengths to deliver a stable solution within a very short time window.

Andy Grover, Stratis team lead and architect, will talk about the advantages and trade-offs in Stratis's design, and some controversial development decisions.
