When will BTRFS be supported?

Hello guys,

will BTRFS be supported by any chance? Actually this file system is the future and will replace soon or later ext4 and so on?
For me or my company its pretty essential because SAP is recommending SLES 12 with BTRFS for their system/db environment to run with.

Greetings

Hi,

It'd be great if you shared the article/release notes where SAP actually recommends BTRFS so I could take a look, because I've never heard of such recommendation before. If there's a huge demand, we can discuss the feature request.

Thanks

I just got the request from a customer (but without SAP) earlier this week. They use RedHat / CentOS with btrfs.

[MERGED] SLES BTRFS Support

Hello,
we use SLES 12SP2 on physical server and consider to use Veeam Agent for Linux for system backup. Unfortunately BTRFS isn't supported by Agent for Linux, is it planned to be supported in future releases?

Hi Anja,

We don't have plans to support BTRFS so far.

Thank you

With SUSE Linux Enterprise 12, Btrfs is the default file system for the operating system

Another vote for BTRFS please - without this support this product is no use to us
