Re: [suse-security] Filesystem choice in secure server installation



Absolutely, if data integrity is that important you should be using a battery powered RAID adapter and storing everything in a transaction aware database--neither of which are all the expensive now days.

As a side note, one reason to support Reiser is that Hans is probably among the most innovative open source programmer out there. While his artwork much more of an acquired taste, his views on the future of file systems is very interesting.

Since Ext3 can take care of metadata and data itself becomes a winner.


It also becomes very slow, because essentially all data has to be written twice. You do not want to use data=journal in a production environment. Should you need data=journal in such an environment, you should look at how you create your business processes (because you have single copies of important data on just a single machine and no recovery procedure from such data losses).
