Now that we are growing strong as a community, I figured that it was time to update the introductory post.

WELCOME to the Linux Data Storage community my fellow Linux (and open source) aficionados!

We have built up this community to encourage both novice and experts alike, in the field of data storage and how it relates to open source technologies. While this community is geared primarily toward Linux, you are still invited to post related non-Linux open source topics.

If your interests are filesystems, data backup / recovery, portable & LAN based storage, there is a section for you....and plenty more. There is also a section for more advanced topics ranging from RAID, Logical Volume Management, etc.

Our only guidelines to posting topics and or comments are as follow:

* Please post topics under their appropriate category.
* No spamming allowed.
* Please be respectful of others when posting topics / comments.
* Racially offensive, abusive, obscene, profane or otherwise socially unacceptable language, literal or implied, and pejorative name-calling (expressed or implied) are prohibited at all times.

Virtualization  - 
 
The new Virtualization 5 beta is out and it now supports storage encryption.

Some other interesting storage options include 
- Hotplugging support for SATA disks
- Storage Encryption
.. and finally
"xHCI Controller to support USB 3 devices"

Looks all great with many other improvements with 3D acceleration and new CPU-register support, so the gains look very substantial.

[[ Edit: I'm noticing the last section  "Filesystem track sessions" is not available to the public.  I was checking it while logged-in with my subscription..but all the rest appear available. If you are really into this stuff it would justify donating to lwn to gain extra access but again you don't need to if you aren't. thanks. ]]
