Red Hat engineers continue working on Stratis Storage as their means of providing Btrfs and (Open)ZFS like features atop the mature XFS paired with DM + Clevis + LUKS. Stratis 3.2 is out today as the newest update to this Linux storage stack.

There is just "one significant enhancement" with Stratis 3.2 and that is the ability for users to stop/start a pool. Stopping a Stratis storage pool provides for the orderly tear down of the storage stack but without destroying the pool metadata. It's like the "stratis pool destroy" but without actually destroying the metadata. There are new commands for starting/stoping a pool and updating existing Stratis commands to be able to show stopped pools.
