    This is really is very interesting!!! This ReFS reminds me of ZFS for Oracle/SUN. ZFS is very nice compared to UFS. When SUN first introduced ZFS, it wasn't compatible with Oracle DB and not bootable also. Now, it's on everything!!! Solaris 11+. It would be nice if Microsoft adopts the same strategy. Easier to manage!!!

    I was thinking the same thing.

    Will probably be great, at first, for things like media storage (pictures, videos, music), and probably work really well with SSDs for that, but not for system disks (or SQL Server). Till a later iteration, of course.

    I suspect in Windows Server, it will work better for a file server than a database server, for now. Guess we'll find out soon enough.
