Tux3 Progress Report: Towards a New General Purpose Filesystem for Linux - Daniel Phillips, Samsung

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

The Tux3 filesystem project began in 2008 and has now reached a point where it is beginning to show favorable benchmark results compared to other Linux filesystems. Tux3 breaks new ground in Linux filesystem technology with its strong consistency semantics, novel high performance atomic commit and asynchronous frontend/backend design that maps well to the new generation of multi-core CPUs. Tux3 is expected to reach a mergable state in the next few months. Much work remains to be done, including incorporating versioning and replication support, improved filesystem checking and repair facilities, enterprise features such as quotas and end to end checksumming, and availability features such as online checking and repair. In this talk, Daniel Phillips, designer of Tux3, will discuss current implementation status, present benchmark results and lay out plans for kernel merge and beyond.
