I observed that disk formatting is much slower in Ubuntu than in RHEL7. Does anybody know why that is?

EDIT: Forgot to mention, I'm formatting the disk with ext4. Using mke2fs

    RHEL7 defaults to XFS, while Ubuntu defaults to ext4. Are you sure you're comparing apples to apples? – Warren Young Apr 15 '16 at 22:34
