There is a significant mortality rate with consumer grade SSDs. If you 
are going to use one, pair it up in a software RAID1 with some matching 
partitions on the hard drive and then adjust the RAID to read 
preferentially from the SSD. See 
for some links explaining how to do that.

That way when the drive fails you aren't left with a completely crashed 

For any production system like this you should be using RAID anyway.
