Over the past year, Oracle has led the following Linux enhancements: development of a new file system, btrfs
, designed for superior scaling; continuing advancements to clustering via Oracle Cluster File System (OCSF2); leading an open source interface project to expose the T10 Data Integrity Field (DIF) standard to help reduce system downtime; open sourcing tools to streamline testing; collaborating on an interface for comprehensive data integrity and developing a new asynchronous I/O interface to reduce complexity; virtualization; and much more.
