    Phoronix: Google To Switch To EXT4, Hires Ted To Code

    Google is in the process of migrating their EXT2 file-systems over to the modern EXT4 file-system. This was brought up in a JFS benchmarking discussion...

        Google's Michael Rubin shared that they chose EXT4 after benchmarking it as well as XFS and JFS (possibly with our Phoronix Test Suite carrying out some of the testing).
        What a shameless plug… Possibly? Really?

            Keep reading the site and eventually, the plug for PTS in every other article won't even make you blink.

                you all realize this is great new right? Google is knockin' 'em out the park lately.

                w/r/t PTS, it's a sister (or some other more appropriate close relation) project. Calling any reference to it a 'shameless plug' is strikingly myopic.

                    It would have carried a bit more weight had you mentionned that in the part I quoted. Also, [citation needed]
