[PLUG] [plug-announce] Monday, June 16, 2014: PLUG West - "The btrfs Filesystem" by Rich Freeman (7pm at FIS in Malvern)

The Philadelphia Area Linux Users Group (PLUG) cordially invites you to
a PLUG West meeting on Monday, June 16 at FIS in Malvern, PA from 7-9 pm.

This month, PLUG West will feature a talk by long-time PLUGger and
Gentoo Council member Rich Freeman, who will be presenting a talk on
btrfs, a next-generation filesystem for Linux.


  Btrfs is a GPL-licensed experimental copy-on-write file system for
  Linux.  Development began at Oracle Corporation in 2007. It is still
  in heavy development and marked as unstable, especially since when the
  filesystem becomes full, no-space conditions arise which might make it
  challenging to delete files.

  Btrfs is intended to address the lack of pooling, snapshots, checksums,
  and integral multi-device spanning in Linux file systems, these features
  being crucial as Linux use scales upward into the larger storage
  configurations common in enterprise.

Interested in Linux, BSD, and Free Software? Whether you're already an
enthusiast or want to learn more, come and join us! PLUG meetings are
free and open to everyone, and anyone who is curious is invited to

The meeting will be at the FIS office in Malvern, PA:

  2 West Liberty Blvd, Suite 300
  Malvern, Pennsylvania 19355
