BTRFS is a computer storage format that combines a file system based on the principle of copy-on-write (COW) with a logical volume manager (not to be confused with the LVM of Linux), developed together. It was originally designed by Oracle Corporation in 2007 for use in Linux, and as of November 2013, the filesystem’s on-disk format has been declared stable in the Linux kernel. According to Oracle, Btrfs “is not an actual acronym”.
