What we work on:

Does this also include PCIe ssds? They are a few orders of magnitude
faster than the SATA ones it seems, for a server, highly recommended.

I've yet to see a real PCIe SSD (i.e. not a PCIe card with some SATA
controllers and SATA SSDs onboard) which is supported by a mainline
Linux kernel and I've talked to quite a few vendors. FusionIO and others
offer binary-only kernel modules for their SSDs, but I wouldn't want to
use binary-only drivers anywhere, especially in OBS.
If you know real, shipping PCIe SSD hardware which is supported by
mainline Linux, please tell us.
