Hi, I tested SSD disks some time ago. The result can be summarized like: SSD: unbelivable fast for random read, ok for sequencial write, very poor random write BBU backed Raid Controller: bad for random reads (nothing to cache here), perfect for writes So if you use a BBU Raid controller with SSD you should get best performance in reads (disable read cache) and ok performance for writes (the poor random writes are "sequencialized" then with WriteBack cache strategy). I could not test the combination though. And if you get your hands on the Intel SSD drives - test it :) For the controller side, use something you can control and finetune (e.g. LSI Unified SATA/SAS).
