May I ask why you have chosen a drive with such a high speed and matching cost?

We have some years of experience with using SSDs for search at work and it is our experience
that commodity SSDs performs very well (one test showed something like 80% of RAM speed, YMMW).
It seems to me that more servers with commodity SSDs could very well be cheaper and give better
throughput than the beast(s) you're using. Are you trying to minimize latency "at all cost"?
