Microsoft Introduced the new File System ReFS(Resilient File System) codenamed Protogon for its upcoming Windows 8 Server,which was built on the foundation of NTFS.
The new file system has been built keeping in mind the increasing demands of storage requirements for Windows,allowing a maximum handling of of 1 Yobibite of storage,shared storage pools across multiple machines ,as well as enhanced resiliency to corruptions.
Recently FirstEver posted the comparison between the benchmark results of ReFS v/s NTFS file systems,with the following test system:
CPU: Intel Corel 2 Duo E8400 @ 4.1GHz
Memory: 4GB Dual DDR2 PC2-9600 1200MHz
HDD 1: Samsung HD753LJ 750GB
HDD 2: Western Digital WD2500BEVS-60U?ST0 250GB
Operating System: Windows 8 Release Preview (build 8400) 64-bit
Here are some of the Test Results,
Copying a file of 3GB from one hard disk drive to another(NTFS to NTFS) took 83.74 seconds while for NTFS to ReFS it took 85.04 seconds.While copying a 4.10 GB file within a same hard disk had the following outcome,
Here are the results of the HD Tune 3.50 Benchmarks for both NTFS and ReFS file systems.
Results Of the FutureMark PCMark 7 Tests
If we compare the copying time in NTFS and in the new ReFS there is a notable difference between the copying times between those two,in the futuremark Tests however the ReFS stands better than NTFS in almost all the departments like gaming,starting applications and other heavy multimedia related work.
