The Linux Plumbers 2013 Microconference-File and Storage Systems track focuses on technologies used in file and storage systems, starting with configuration, monitoring and management technologies and sessions on the traditional file and storage stack. The focus is on efforts that span multiple teams and areas of focus.

The structure will be similar to what was followed the previous years where this is not about listening to long presentations, rather framing a discussion with a few slides or just opening comments and then kicking off a broad discussion with participation by the attendees.
