Btrfs ("Butter FS") is a new copy on write filesystem for Linux aimed at
implementing advanced features while focusing on fault tolerance, repair
and easy administration. Initially developed by Oracle, Btrfs is licensed
under the GPL and open for contribution from anyone.
This tutorial will take users through some of the new features of the
btrfs file system, including:
- Creating/mounting the filesystem - Setting up mirroring/striping -
Adding/removing devices - Rebalancing data - Growing/shrinking volumes -
Creating snapshots/subvolumes - Booting from snapshots
On completion, attendees should be confident about using btrfs in their
own environments and taking advantage of some of the new features.
