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.

Avi has been working in the Information Systems industry since 1993. He has extensive experience in networking, including server and workstation hardware; network, server and workstation operating systems; and LAN & WAN connectivity. His roles and responsibilities in several projects have included technical project management, network architecture design, network and software integration design, workstation environment development, software deployment and troubleshooting.
