Abstract: 

Over the past year cifs.ko has been one of the most active file systems in Linux, with dramatic improvements to performance and new function which has enabled additional workloads to run over network mounts using SMB3 and SMB3.1.1.  This has made this a great year for Linux SMB3/SMB3.11 support. This presentation will demonstrate and describe some of the new features and progress over the past year in accessing Azure, Windows, Macs, and modern NAS servers and the cloud (Azure) via SMB3/SMB3.11 using Linux clients and  tools.  New configuration options to help performance, improve security and to enable additional workloads will also be discussed.
