XFS with No Barrier Mount option deprecated RRS feed

  • Question

  • I tried to perform SQL Server database restore with xfs filesystem and nobarrier in Azure cloud environment. It performs restore of some 15GB data in around 8 minutes.

    I heard this option is getting deprecated in near future. Without this option restore time increases to 25 minutes.

    Do we know any alternatives to this options which can be used to realize same performance metrics during restore with XFS filesystem ?
