Samba is the most important open source SMB file serving software, and arguably, one of the most important SMB implementations out there, being shipped with all major Linux distributions and part of many big and small storage appliances. A lot has happened in Samba's file server in the last couple of years, and this talk first describes file serving with Samba in the age of Samba 4: Samba 4.0 was released as the Active Directory server release, but it was also a very big file server relase with a lot of new changes and new features.

With the introduction of SMB version 3, Microsoft moves from pure workstation workload focus to server workloads, aiming to partly replace block storage. In particular Microsoft catches up with Samba/CTDB to offer all-active clustering. The second part of this talk describes current work in progress in this area and where the Samba file server is heading.
