XFS: the filesystem of the future?

Jonathan Corbet summarizing a presentation about the present and future of XFS by Dave Chinner:

XFS is often seen as the filesystem for people with massive amounts of data. It serves that role well, Dave said, and it has traditionally performed well for a lot of workloads. Where things have tended to fall down is in the writing of metadata; support for workloads that generate a lot of metadata writes has been a longstanding weak point for the filesystem. In short, metadata writes were slow, and did not really scale past even a single CPU.

After the break the video of Dave Chinner’s presentation, “XFS: Recent and Future Adventures in Filesystem scalability”.
