While it didn't appear until the release candidate for R2 was released, the new File Classification Infrastructure (FCI) definitely turned a few heads. The feature is derived from the growing concern that not all data is created equal, so how do you organize and protect different groups of files based on varying degrees of value and sensitivity?

While FCI still requires some work to implement (for example, how do you standardize what different organizations consider "valuable" information?), many have agreed that it's one of R2's happiest surprises.
