Got a supplier for the custom hardware you'd need? Just use a PCIe

$200 USD at Newegg:
Current best value for a PCIe SSD suitable for dedicated log drive use,
can fit ~22 maximum size (2GB) XFS logs. Note the MLC NAND. If all
your filesystems will sustain constant high rate metadata writes, an SLC
based product is more suitable, though price is 10-50x higher for PCIe
SLC cards. If you want/need the 10x increase in flash cell life of SLC
NAND, go with this Intel SLC SATAII SSD for ~2x the $$ of the Revo.
Note it's write IOPS is 'only' 33k, size is 32GB, 18GB less.
