comment Recommended SSD Setup
I've used the HP blade versions of the fusionIO and it's literally astonishing - I couldn't find a use for it because everything I do needs to be clustered in one way or another, needing shared storage but there's no doubt that they're about the fastest way to do non-cached storage today.

I'm not with you sorry, LVM can act as a software RAID provider - do you mean you want to use LVM on top of another software RAID system?
