SearchEnterpriseLinux.com previews presentations by Ted Ts'o and Chris Mason
at the Linux Foundation End User Collaboration Summit that starts on October 13. "But changing the file system to fix the scalability and functional limitations of ext3, the default file system in many popular Linux distributions, requires a significant education outreach. Because the consequences of data loss are so severe, data center managers are reluctant to trust their data to new file systems, Ts'o said. New-system information needs to be shared well ahead of time, including a roadmap of coming features so IT professionals know what to expect, he said. That's where the Linux Foundation's event hopes to make inroads.
