I have been looking into the Reiser-Filesystem, which is available for Linux
(together with about a hundred others), mainly for the 24x7 issue. As I see
it there are two ways, using shadows on separate disks, or use a
'journaling' file system. First tests of Reiser show that it not only
recovers quickly it seams a lot faster in general to ext2 and the other
common file system formats.

The Reiser journaling file system logs every change to data structures in
file system, enabling its re-creation within a few seconds after a sudden
system failure (e.g. power outage).
