OCFS2 : road towards a general purpose filesystem
OCFSv2 is a mostly general purpose cluster filesystem released under GPL license. It is a shared disk based filesystem. The goal is to present the benefits of our solution, the design principles and design choices made. We hope to evolve our FS to be a truely GP filesystem similar to GFS. By the time of the conference ocfs v2 should be included in the mainline linux kernel.
