SSD Drives for Server

Hi All,
    Im after some drives for a server but they seem to be very hard to get a hold of. we have a ProLiant DL380 G6 and we are looking for some SSD's to drop in for nice fast drive access. We have been give the part 637071-001 but they are hard to find, i was wondering if anyone else has managed another solution/combination that has worked in the past?

Thinking the £500 per drive is a little over kill!

Have you considered the option of the d2700 expansion bay?  It supports the G7 disk caddies.

I took this idea from here the day our G8 servers arrived and realized that a firmware restriction had been placed on our controllers:

He's got a lot of other good ideas.

The Options provided did not resolve the Issue but were all relevant to the question asked. I migrated the server to slower local disks in a large Raid 5 setup
