When comparing Distelli vs TFS, the Slant community recommends TFS for most people. In the question“What are the best continuous integration tools?” TFS is ranked 26th while Distelli is ranked 29th. The most important reason people chose TFS is:
TFS contains very few locks and aims to be as suitable for multithreaded systems as possible. It makes use of multiple truly concurrent structures to manage the data, and scales linearly by the number of cores. This is perhaps the most important feature of TFS.
Ranked in these QuestionsQuestion Ranking
Pro Can deploy to any server, on any platform
Distelli suports all of the popular platforms and can be deployed to any server.
Pro Allows tracking deployments
Through Distelli, the user can track who deployed what application to what environment, as well as when it happened.
Pro Environment-specific commands
In Distelli, the user can set up environment-specific commands to run before, during, or after a deployment.
Pro Displays real-time logs
As the user deploys, real-time logs are displayed, providing useful information and giving the user an intuitive means off which he/she can operate.

systems as possible. It makes use of multiple truly concurrent structures
to manage the data, and scales linearly by the number of cores. This is
perhaps the most important feature of TFS.
Pro Usable in other systems
It was never planned to be Redox-only.
Pro Revision history
TFS stores a revision history of every file without imposing extra
overhead. This means that you can revert any file into an earlier version,
backing up the system automatically and without imposed overhead from
Pro Data integrity
TFS, like ZFS, stores full checksums of the file (not just metadata), and
on top of that, it is done in the parent block. That means that almost all
data corruption will be detected upon read.
Pro Copy-on-write semantics
Similarly to Btrfs and ZFS, TFS uses CoW semantics, meaning that no cluster
is ever overwritten directly, but instead it is copied and written to a new
Pro O(1) recursive copies
Like some other file systems, TFS can do recursive copies in constant time,
but there is an unique addition: TFS doesn't copy even after it is mutated.
How? It maintains segments of the file individually, such that only the
updated segment needs copying.
Pro Guaranteed atomicity
The system will never enter an inconsistent state (unless there is hardware
failure), meaning that unexpected power-off won't ever damage the system.
Pro Improved caching
TFS puts a lot of effort into caching the disk to speed up disk accesses.
It uses machine learning to learn patterns and predict future uses to
reduce the number of cache misses. TFS also compresses the in-memory cache,
reducing the amount of memory needed.
Pro Better file monitoring
CoW is very suitable for high-performance, scalable file monitoring, but
unfortunately only few file systems incorporate that. TFS is one of those.
Pro All memory safe
TFS uses only components written in Rust. As such, memory unsafety is only
possible in code marked unsafe, which is checked extra carefully.
Pro Full coverage testing
TFS aims to be full coverage with respect to testing. This gives relatively
strong guarantees on correctness by instantly revealing large classes of
Pro Improved garbage collection
TFS uses Bloom filters for space-efficient and fast garbage collection. TFS
allows the FS garbage collector to run in the background without blocking
the rest of the file system.
Pro SSD friendly
TFS tries to avoid the write limitation in SSD by repositioning dead sectors.
Pro Full-disk compression
TFS is the first file system to incorporate complete full-disk compression
through a scheme we call RACC (random-access cluster compression). This
means that every cluster is compressed only affecting performance slightly.
It is estimated that you get 60-120% more usable space.
TFS is asynchronous: operations can happen independently; writes and
reads from the disk need not block.
Con Security concerns
Although Distelli is very easy to use and helps developers who don't want to spend time setting up their build environment, there are a number of security concerns regarding the tool. This is because you have to host an agent that allows RPC with a relatively unknown third party.
Con Not ready for use
While many components are complete, TFS itself is not ready for use.
