Daniel Phillips has worked out faster fsync support within Tux3, the promising open-source file-system that continues to be developed outside of the mainline kernel.

EXT4 maintainer Ted Ts'o previously doubted Tux3 capabilities when it came to a fast and reliable fsync, but Phillips has managed to prove him wrong with the latest async Tux3 fsync code.

According to Daniel Phillips' results, Tux3 is working faster than EXT4, Btrfs, and XFS. You can find all of the new Tux3 technical details and performance results via this kernel mailing list post.
