Transactional Filesystem

ACID-compliant Computer Filesystem

Sometimes I need to make changes to a web server that's under load. I want to move a file that's already on the production server off to a backup location somewhere, and I want to copy the file I've been developing into its place. I want to do this without disrupting users who might be accessing this file, and I want the whole operation to succeed or fail as a unit. Proposed is a filesystem that allows nontrivial ACID-compliant transactions like modern relational database systems do for their data.

       I thought this was exactly how most modern file systems worked. They're even called transactional file systems.

       The key word here is "nontrivial". I want to make multiple changes in a single transaction and have them succeed or fail as a unit.
