Which filesystems in opensuse 11.4 and later will handle these

I don't know if my answer will match your expectations ...

1. -larger disk volumes i.e in the 2 to 3 Terabyte range.

any from ext3, ext4, xfs, btrfs, for having old grub 0.9.7 working it's better to have it below 1024cyl like having a small boot partiton.

2. -lots of files on the disk > 150,000+

ext4, xfs depend of the size and usage of files.

Beware of xfs if you really have a lot of files - in case an xfs_repair is necessary it will die on memory hunger and you will die on time.

3. -will handle a system restart when system stops responding [restart
with a power off/on]

? sorry don't understand what you mean

Usually you can decide about some "error behaviour", but there will surely be no way to react with power off/on...

4. -have a journalled file system recovery to ensure filesystem and files
are in a healthy state after a system freeze/reboot ?

ext3, ext4, xfs, btrfs(to be tested and only latest version)

What file systems does the build service use to handle the volumes of data
and load ?

Mainly ext3 for
For the vm building package they use ext3 (take a look at a log build)
