Btrfs System Rollbacks In Fedora 13
Phoronix: Btrfs System Rollbacks In Fedora 13
One of the benefits of Btrfs besides offering competitive performance against other Linux file-systems and SSD optimizations is its support for sub-volumes and writable snapshots. While Btrfs is still in development and is not yet used as a default file-system by any Linux distribution, Red Hat has been looking to capitalize upon the capabilities of Btrfs by introducing support for system rollbacks into Fedora. The Btrfs-based system rollback support has been a feature for Fedora 13 so with the release of the Fedora 13 Beta earlier this week we decided to further investigate this feature.
low callorie but tastes the same
Great to see them embracing it.
Space efficiency, competition to time Machine
Do these snapshots store the entire filesystem or only a diff to what has changed since the previous snapshot? A diff would be better because it would save space. I think that's what Apple's Time machine does.
By the way, how far is Redhat from making a competitor to Apple's Time Machine with this BRFS rollback?
