Red Hat Enterprise Linux supports a variety of file systems. Each type of file system solves different problems and their usage is application specific. Use the information about the key differences and considerations to select and deploy the appropriate file system based on your specific application requirements.
The supported file systems include local on-disk file systems XFS and ext4, and network and client-and-server file systems NFS and SMB. You can perform several operations with a file system such as creating, mounting, backing up, restoring, checking and repairing, as well as limiting the storage space by using quotas.
