That seems like it would work. Assuming Servers allow that type of thing. But i'm sure they do.
Diskless clients aren't VMs. They are hardware machines but have the OS stored on some network storage and it boots and runs over the network.

you can share partitions off the drive using iSCSI or AoE, and boot your required OS off a network attached storage drive as though it is locally attached to the client PC.

Most NICs can be adapted to do this - check out EtherBoot

For a server i do not recommend MLC Based SSD.

Get SLC Based SSD wich has the necessary endurability to manage the loads of a Server in operation.

Linux can support TRIM: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/TRIM_(S...nd_SSD_support

Thanks everyone.

Just the few remaining questions.

- Would there be any issues putting the SSD on a Perc 5/i?
- Does anyone have any recommendations for a file system I should use?

Well it's a server but it's a home server . SLC would be wonderful but for the cost I may as well get a few MLCs and RAID them together and get a few more for MLCs just in case the ones I'm using break.
