For real time applications, what file system is recommended to use, XFS or BTRFS on CentOS 7 or Redhat 7?

  • Think of the time in service both implementations has had. While I have high hopes for BTRFS in the future, I have had recent bad luck with it and wouldn’t use it in production yet.


  • XFS is the default production file system in CentOS 7… I’ve been using it for quite awhile on C6 for my performance-oriented PostgreSQL
    database servers as well as archival storage servers and such, and have had zero problems.

    BTRFS is still, IMHO, experimental and not ready for production without extensive vetting for your spsiecific configuration and applications.

    I used btrfs, but when i lost all my data (btrfs corruption) from separate raid 1 partition on fedora 21 – i don’t use it any more.

    I use EXT4 or XFS on CentOS or fedora. In production servers: CentOS and xfs.
