Sun.com before to bankrupt was spamming me about their nice idea on SSD
appliance for their servers.
It took me a some while though to know out accidentally that they apply
solid-state memory devices for... FS journal.
This looks wise and reasonable to me because:
1. SSD is known as less reliable storage.
2. SSD has less track-to-track seek average time.
( than usual HDD )
