This exposes a generic key-value interface, which the layer above leverages to implement files, directories, etc.

--Steven In this blog post I’d like to talk about a new file system for Windows.
This file system, which we call Re FS, has been designed from the ground up to meet a broad set of customer requirements, both today’s and tomorrow’s, for all the different ways that Windows is deployed.
Our design attributes are closely related to our goals.
As we go through these attributes, keep in mind the history of producing file systems used by hundreds of millions of devices scaling from the smallest footprint machines to the largest data centers, from the smallest storage format to the largest multi-spindle format, from solid state storage to the largest drives and storage systems available.
