NILFS2 is almost stable.  We have a record of nine months operation on
in-house samba servers and a webDAV server.

However, a few crash problems are reported on this mailing list and
remain unresolved.  I suspect they are caused by some sort of bug
related to "garbage collection" mechanism, which often makes trouble
on this sort of filesystems.

I think you may as well wait for resolution of these issues and test
enough if you will actually apply it for business use.  NILFS2 is
still marked "experimental" in kernel as with BTRFS.
