Is FreeBSD's UNIX Filesystem (UFS) best suited having a microSD storage?
Is FreeBSD’s UNIX Filesystem (UFS) best suited having a microSD storage? I have a Raspberry Pi SOC and microSD is where my FreeBSD is installed and at the same time, storage of my database data and other files.
UFS is certainly simple to configure, but doesn’t offer as much protection for your data as say, ZFS does. I run my Raspberry Pi on ZFS. Even with a single-device VDEV, having the ZFS check-summing protection is convenient, and also the ZFS snapshots are handy both for system upgrades and easy integration into my existing ZFS-based backup system. With a sufficiently large SD card, setting
copies=2 will give data redundancy that is better than single device, although not as good as a multi-device VDEV.
