"This tutorial will show you how to install and use JFS under Linux. JFS is an enterprise journalling filesystem technology currently used by IBM enterprise servers and now being ported to Linux. This tutorial assumes that you have some experience compiling your own Linux kernel. If not, please take the Compiling the Linux kernel tutorial on developerWorks, and then head back here."

"JFS is an advanced journalling filesystem. It has been designed to provide excellent performance and high availability for server environments. However, JFS is also well suited for Linux workstations and home machines, since everyone can benefit from a reliable filesystem with high performance."
