Bitrot and atomic COWs: Inside 'next-gen' filesystems [Tech Article]
posted January 16 2014 11:11.34 by spic0m

Jim Salter writes at Ars Technica about the 'next-gen' filesystems that protect our data and minimize the risk of loss when the power goes off or the kernel crashes.

"Most people don't care much about their filesystems. But at the end of the day, the filesystem is probably the single most important part of an operating system. A kernel bug might mean the loss of whatever you're working on right now, but a filesystem bug could wipe out everything you've ever done... and it could do so in ways most people never imagine."
