  Oracle Clustering File System (OCFS)
  presented by: Mark Fasheh, Oracle Corporation's Linux Development Team
    OCFS is a clustered database file system written at Oracle for the
    Linux kernel (as a file system module), and released under the GNU GPL.
    The presentation will describe the basics of OCFS, including on
    disk layout, advantages of extent based systems, locking strategies,
    change notification, journaling/node recovery, and database optimizations.
    Lay out the reasoning behind our design choices, what we've learned from
    those, and future OCFS improvements.

    Mark Fasheh has taken an active role in the Linux Community since being
    introduced to the OS during his freshman year at UCLA.  While there,
    he helped found the UCLA Linux Users group and spent three years
    advocating Linux use as the LUG President.  Before Oracle, Mark spent time
    working on Linux printing for VA Software, and creating Linux clustering
    software for IBM.  Since joining Oracle Mark has taken an active role in
    the development of the Oracle Clustered File System.


  In conjunction with the Oracle Technology Network, Mark will be
  bringing the latest Oracle 9i Database on Linux software for all
