Summary: Feasible to make T1000 suck less using SSD?

        Consensus is that T1000s and other first generation Niagara
machines are crippled foremostly by their CPU featureset moreso than
by the i/o subsystem and that I really shouldn't be running this sort
of stuff on these sort of machines (which is OK because it's only
staging / POC at the moment -- I grabbed the cheapest SPARC I could
find) :\     The good news is, however, that for the database tier of
this workload, there is a likelihood of increasing performance
somewhat using an SSD instead of the desktop-grade SATA disk that came
in the machines originally.

Thanks to Roger, Jim and Ric for the insight.
