How about you bought an UPS too? A journaling filesystem is not the ultimate solution against power cuts.

Servers should still have UPS, if you really care for the data on that machine. You mentioned groupware. It must have a database of some sort running. You may still lose data in this case, even with a journaling fs.

A UPS for one computer is under $100.
