Samba is the most important open source SMB file server, and arguably, one of the most important SMB
implementations out there. While the Active Directory Server has been the hip topic recently, the file server is really cooking. One of the most active areas of development is SMB version 3, introduced by Microsoft to move focus from pure workstation workload to server workload. SMB3 adds an abundance of new features to the protocol. In particular, Microsoft caught up with Samba/CTDB to offer all-active clustering.

After an overview of the state of Samba's file server, this talk will present the progress of SMB3 in Samba. It will focus on Multi-Channel, the core of which has just been added to Samba 4.4, including a demo. Afterwards an outlook will be given on other active areas like RDMA, persistent file handles, and scale-out SMB clustering, reporting on status and challenges.
