Btrfs description
Btrfs is a new copy on write filesystem for Linux aimed at implementing advanced features while focusing on fault tolerance, easy administration and repair. Initially developed by Oracle, Btrfs is licensed under the GPL and open for contribution from anyone.

Linux has a wealth of filesystems to choose from, but we are facing a number of challenges with scaling to the large storage subsystems that are becoming common in today's data centers. Filesystems need to scale in their ability to address and manage large storage, and also in their ability to detect, repair and tolerate errors in the data stored on disk.

Here are some key features of "Btrfs":

??? Extent based file storage (2^64 max file size)
??? Space efficient packing of small files
??? Space efficient indexed directories
??? Dynamic inode allocation
??? Writable snapshots
??? Subvolumes (separate internal filesystem roots)
??? Object level mirroring and striping
??? Checksums on data and metadata (multiple algorithms available)
??? Strong integration with device mapper for multiple device support
??? Online filesystem check
??? Very fast offline filesystem check. btrfs Wiki has a problem.
