There have been many new file system and storage technologies which have arrived in Linux in the past year or two. From ext4, btrfs, UBIFS as new file systems, to Solid State Disks, and Data Integrity Fields as new storage technologies, it has been a new and exciting time to work in the Linux File System and Storage technology areas.
This talk will place into context the developments and changes in technology that have driven these new innovations, and what it means for the users of the Linux File System and Storage Stack.
Theodore Ts’o was the first North American Linux Kernel Developer, and organizes the Annual Linux Kernel Developer’s Summit, which brings together the top 75 Linux Kernel Developers from all over the world for an annual face-to-face meeting. He was a founding board member of the Free Standards Group, and was chair of that organization until it merged with OSDL to form the Linux Foundation. He is one of the core maintainers for the ext2, ext3, and ext4 file systems, and is the primary author and maintainer for e2fsprogs, the user space utilities for the ext2/3/4 file systems. At IBM, Theodore served as the architect for the Real-Time Linux development team. Theodore is currently on assignment with the Linux Foundation where he serves its Chief Technology Officer
