True. And the latter works really well on standalone systems and in an SP.




At LinuxWorld today, IBM announced the contribution of technology
and talent to help make Linux a high-performance operating system
in e-business environments.

Part of a line up of new IBM initiatives, the open-source contribution
is designed to accelerate development of a journaling file system for
Linux capable of protecting the integrity of corporate data during power
outages and other system failures.
This capability is particularly important in e-business environments,
where Web sites can receive millions of hits a day and Web application
servers are caching massive amounts of data.

IBM will assign a dedicated team of software engineers to work with the
open source community in developing an enterprise-level journaling file
system for Linux.  Journaling enhances a file system's ability to track
transactions and log operations, and can retrieve file data quickly and
intact if a system fails or gets shut down prematurely.

IBM's journaled file system technology, currently used in IBM enterprise
servers,is designed for high-throughput server environments, key to 
intranet and other high-performance e-business file servers.
The source code is now available for download from the Open Source and
Linux zones in the IBM developerWorks* website (http://www.ibm.com/developerworks).
