Hi all,

I searched the mailing list archive and could not find an answer. We are
currently using XFS on Linux for a 17TB Volume used for backups. We are
running out of space, so rather than order another array, I would like to
try to implement filesystem-level compression. Does XFS support any type of
compression? If not, are there any other ways to optimize for more space
storage? We are doing extensive rsyncs as our method of backups, so gzipping
on top of the filesystem is not really an option.

Thanks so much,
