Btrfs Merged in Linux 2.6.29

Looks like Btrfs made it into 2.6.29.

Which is pretty sweet because as Btrfs stabilizes it means that a large future port isn’t necessary.

What’s Btrfs? It’s a compelling ZFS alternative for Linux designed to work with Linux from day zero (as opposed to being ported from Open Solaris).

The most compelling feature for me is online snapshots. Maybe compression. Thought to be honest LVM snapshots seem to be working for us in production.
