    Hi Tachyon,This distribution (Centos 7) has proper support for btrfs, even for raid1/0, raid5/6 is not recommended and I would not use that yet. I am running this way for about one year now and I didn't had any issues.I opted for btrfs for multiple reasons: is a COW filesystem, so the corruption theoretically is very unlikely even if you unplug it directly (you will always have a previous version of the file), I can use read only snapshots to protect my data in case of any cryptolocker, I can scrub my disks to see if bad blocks are sitting undiscovered, I can use compression, and I wanted to test for myself it's reliability so I can use it in production (and I did that on several boxes). There are some kernel / init scripts issues if you are having the root filesystem on a btrfs raid1 arr…

There are some kernel / init scripts issues if you are having the root filesystem on a btrfs raid1 array, but you can always recover your data (mount -o degraded ...) or mount it with autofs.If one of your volumes in the software raid is bad you can mount your filesystem without noticing it (same applies with lvm mirror), you have to periodically check or monitor it in some way. In a btrfs setup your volume will not mount and it's easier to see that on a box that you usually do not check (eg. owncloud will not work).
