Yup - interesting and very niche product - it seems like it's only obvious application is for the Postgresql WAL problem :-)
Well, you could do it for any journaled system (XFS, JFS, ext3, reiserfs).But yes, it seems specifically designed for a battery backed journal. Though the article reviews it for very different purposes.
Though it was a Windows review, and I don't know of any way to make NTFS use a separate device for a journal. (Though I expect it is possible somehow).
The real differentiator is the battery backup part. Otherwise, the filesystem caching is more effective, so put the RAM on the motherboard. - Luke
