[$] The Machine: Controlling storage with a filesystem

Post Syndicated from corbet original http://lwn.net/Articles/711719/rss

Keith Packard is the chief architect for The Machine project at HPE; we
covered his talk on this project back in
2015. At the 2017 linux.conf.au Kernel Miniconf, Packard focused on one
specific aspect of The Machine’s hardware and software configuration: how
storage is managed and presented to applications. Like much that is being
done with this project, its storage architecture is an interesting
combination of new ideas and long-established techniques.
