I remember that Intel released a line of SSDs that looked ideal for this, 
but I can't recall which one it was...

For a ZIL, write/IOP speed and endurance are primary considerations.  Size 
is not: The ZIL will never need more space than 1/2 the RAM of the box, 
IIRC.  Anything more than that is just wasted space.
