Fail safe File system in the new OS?
I am using Mbed OS for a few embedded apps. And the greatest advantage of Mbed OS is that even if I do a power reset when app is running, the app starts flawlessly.
In Linux like OS (for example Raspbian on Raspberry Pi), file system is not fail safe when for example power interruption. Desktop Linux such as Ubuntu or Raspbian, may use UPS (Uninterrupted Power Supply) to avoid OS crash due to power failure. However such solutions are not always feasible in case of Embedded systems.
With the announcement of this new OS for Cortex-A MCU, I am delighted because now embedded App can enjoy advantages of Linux like OS. However I have following question:
Will the new OS posses same robustness, simplicity of Mbed OS along with power of Linux?

Hi Hemant, All the critical functions in Mbed Linux OS, like update and boot, will be resilient to power failure, and Mbed Linux OS uses an ext4 flash filesystem that is tolerant to power failures. We welcome your feedback if you have specific concerns or proposals.
