Matias Bjørling continues tackling support for "open-channel SSDs" within Linux. His fourth revision to his Open-Channel SSD patch-set has been published and re-based against code in development for the Linux 4.3 kernel.

Open-Channel SSDs refer to solid-state drives that expose the physical characteristics to the host. File-systems and applications are able to directly place and manage data on flash chips where they wish along with managing the garbage collection and other behavior. Tieing in with Open-Channel SSDs is the LightNVM specification for providing a common interface to the system for controlling the SSD characteristics.

  • Testing Fedora Cloud image with systemd-networkd

    One of the change proposal I have submitted for Fedora 23 is about having systemd-netowrkd for network configuration. You can find the change page here. Instead of carrying the old network-scripts, we wanted to move to networkd, which is a part of systemd. Couple of the notable benefits are about how it will help us to keep the image size sane by not bringing in any external dependencies, and also about similarity between many different distribution based cloud images from users’ point of view. You can look into the discussions on the Talk page, and the trac ticket.
