A Production SQL Server goes SSD

As I have mentioned occasionally, SQL Server Central is good place to pick up information, even though I don't run SQL Server here. Today they have an article about moving Fusion-io cards into a production system, and the glitches they encountered.

Fusion-io no longer even refers to their cards as "SSD", since they're not connected on a standard I/O channel, and are not yet bootable (a special driver, not yet scheduled for *nix, is still not available for win*).

And, as usual, this attempt did nothing to refactor the databases, so it's a pure I/O strategy. It was still considered worthwhile, though.
