Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7 beta file systems: New scale, speed, & features

Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7 beta brings many changes in the file and storage world. Most significant is the choice of XFS as our default file system for all support architectures. This will expand the size of a single file system up to 500TB in supported configurations. The file system stack will also take advantage of support for a wide variety of new storage devices and is tuned to run with better latency and higher speeds on very high speed SSD storage devices. In this session, Ric Wheeler will detail these NFS and GFS2 changes.
