An anonymous reader writes “Google is in the process of upgrading their existing EXT2 filesystem to the new and improved EXT4 filesystem. Google has benchmarked three different filesystems — XFS, EXT4 and JFS. In their benchmarking, EXT4 and XFS performed, as impressively as each other. However, in view of the easier upgrade path from EXT2 to EXT4, Google has decided to go ahead with EXT4.”
