Abstract [en]

In this thesis, the average throughput of Btrfs and ZFS on Linux is compared by conducting a set of experiments. Btrfs and ZFS are two enterprise-grade file systems that are designed with data integrity and scalability in mind and they bring numerous of other useful features as well. Btrfs is a relatively young file system whereas ZFS is more mature. However, the implementation of ZFS on the Linux platform was released only recently. The main conclusions that can be drawn from the analysis of the gathered data is that Btrfs has improved greatly in recent years and is today showing great throughput whereas ZFS on Linux is performing considerably worse than Btrfs.
