We recently bought the Intel 311 for that purpose. This drive is quite
cheap and should perform ok. If you want something better have a look at
the 710 line. You should always mirror your ZIL drives. There's a lot of
content available on this subject actually. I once read about a tool
called zilstat which should help you decide if you do actually need a
SSD. NFS and db's are the usual usecases.
