I'm building a new server which will be running a text search service for our online web services. This service requires fast IO so I am trying to further reduce any potential bottlenecks. I would love to hear some recommendations on SSD's (or alternatives), hardware controllers, make and models, good stories, bad stories, or anything else relevant. The indexes this service will be building should be small so I think a 64GB drive would be much more than adequate.
Thanks in advance!
edit: the budget I have to work with would be around $4,000 CDN.
