ReFS v2: Cloning, Projecting, and Moving Data

File systems are fundamentally about wrapping abstractions around data: files are really just named data blocks. ReFS v2 presents just a couple new abstractions that open up greater control for applications and virtualization.

We'll cover block projection and cloning as well as in-line data tiering. Block projection makes it easy to efficiently build simple concepts like file splitting and copying as well as more complex ones like efficient VM snapshots. Inline data tiering brings efficient data tiering to virtualization and OLTP workloads.

Learning Objectives

How ReFS v2 exploits its metadata store to project file blocks at a fine granularity
How metadata is managed in ReFS v2
How data movement between tiers can happen efficiently while maintaining data integrity
