Stratis 2.1 Proposed For Fedora 33 To Bring Per-Pool Encryption

Written by Michael Larabel in Fedora on 20 July 2020 at 06:32 PM EDT. 20 Comments
While Fedora 33 desktop variants are aiming to use Btrfs by default, non-desktop environments are not and Red Hat remains committed to XFS and their Stratis Storage technology for Red Hat Enterprise Linux. Coming to Fedora 33 will also likely be Stratis 2.1 for offering the latest on that front.

As a late feature proposal for Fedora 33, Red Hat engineers are proposing Stratis 2.1 be available in F33 as the newest version. The shiny new feature of Stratis 2.1 is supporting per-pool encryption and various new interfaces for administering/monitoring it along with stratis-cli support for making use of the encryption functionality.

More details on the Stratis 2.1 encryption capabilities and the plans for making it available in Fedora 33 can be found via this change proposal.
