The Btrfs Filesystem: Design, Status and Goals - Chris Mason


Chris works on the Oracle Linux kernel engineering team, where his development time is focused on filesystems and IO.


Btrfs is a general purpose, copy on write filesystem with many advanced features including writable snapshots, multiple device support and repair driven design.
