As far as I understand, xfs is an excelent filesystem and should 
probably be considered whenever filesystem performance can significantly 
impact your application.

I'm preferring ext4 simply because it's more likely to be supported out 
of the box in most scenarios and to keep my installations as simple as 
possible as it's unlikely I would feel any real difference by switching 
to another filesystem.
