I have a couple mission critical servers (3TB) that I formatted with JFS.  
I have been completely happy with the results and have yet to see any 
filesystem corruption.

A JFS Fsck on the drive takes only a few seconds even after a crash.

I have created and moved various large files without a problem.  I have 
also pulled the plug during write intensive operations.

Just wanted to add another vote for JFS. :)
