While everybody is still excited about btrfs, eagerly awaiting it's readiness for production, other local file systems are implementing some of the advanced features required by production while also trying to cope with new Storage capabilities.

In this talk I would like discuss some of the interesting new features recently implemented or still in development in our most important local file systems in Linux kernel. Give some examples and describe how can we benefit from it even more when taking advantage of storage capabilities. And also how to improve support for advanced types of storage from within
the file systems.

In short I'll try to touch topics regarding data and metadata checksumming, file level and block level snapshotting, thin provisioning, user-guided allocation and possibly some of the newer types of storage such as non-volatile memory or hybrid drives.
