IBM's journaled file system technology, currently used in IBM
enterprise servers, is designed for high-throughput server
environments, key to running intranet and other high-performance
e-business file servers. IBM is contributing this technology to the
Linux open source community with the hope that some or all of it
will be useful in bringing the best of journaling capabilities to
the Linux operating system.
