NFSv4 is now default in recent linux distributions and provides a platform for further protocol extensions. Among other features that have recently arrived or are in progress:
  • improvements useful for storage of VM images, including sparse file support, server-side copy, and labeled (selinux-enabled) NFS.
  • features which abstract the location of data, such as pNFS and fedfs.
We'll also discuss the protocol development process and possible future directions.
