Feedback form is now closed.
XFS has long been the scale-up scale-out filesystem first for SGI Irix and now Linux. Recent developments in XFS will soon enable users to perform lightweight file copies, deduplicate file data, perform online filesystem checking and repair, and take advantage of persistent memory.

In the first part of this session, the presenter will discuss the motivation behind the new features, sketch how they are implemented, and talk about how they affect everyday operations of a data store. Possible future development direction will also be presented, along with a summary of relevant LSFMM discussions.

In the second part of the session, the floor will be opened to the audience to ask questions about existing and upcoming features, make suggestions about what kinds of things they'd like to see from the Linux filesystem community over the next few years, and to share their own user stories.
