XFS and Other File Systems in Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7

To that end, the XFS file system has replaced the ext4 file system as the default for RHEL 7. If you are a RHEL system administrator, this means using new tools for creating, tuning, resizing, removing, and otherwise working with the default file system for RHEL 7.
