Training Thursdays: BTRFS in Oracle Linux 7

Here are some facts about BTRFS for Oracle Linux users:

  • BTRFS is available as a partitioning scheme during the installation of Oracle Linux 7.
  • BTRFS is production ready with Oracle Linux.

  • The Unbreakable Enterprise Kernel (UEK) includes numerous BTRFS improvements.

  • While BTRFS might have slower write performance than XFS due to its data integrity and copy-on-write functionality, its benefits often outweigh this impact. This is particularly true for the root filesystem and the filesystem that stores binaries, as they don’t require high performance and can be greatly improved through snapshotting, sub volume and send/receive support.

BTRFS is one of the many topics you can learn about by taking the Oracle Linux 7: System Administration course. This course is available as a:

  • Training-on-Demand: Start training within 24 hours of registration, following lecture material at your own pace through streaming video and booking time to get hands-on experience when suits your schedule.

    Training Thursdays: Advance Your Linux Knowledge with Hands-On Experience

    The great hands-on experience you get in Oracle Linux courses is the best way to reinforce Linux administration concepts and techniques.

    The Oracle Linux 7: Advanced Administration course guides you through concepts and confirms your learning via extensive hands-on practices. You will configure network services and authentication services, configure network storage, shared file system types, and device multipathing. You will also configure different virtualization technologies to better utilize system resources such as CPU, memory, network and I/O bandwidth, and to allocate these system resources to critical processes.

    You can take these courses as live-virtual events, attending a live event from your own desk, and so avoiding travel costs, or you can travel to an in-class event. Below is a selection of the live-virtual and in-class events on the schedule for the two course titles.
