See the Sun Flash Accelerator PCIe Card Product Notes for minimum required firmware versions.
Solid state flash devices have block alignments typically aligned on 4-Kbyte boundaries, not the 512-byte boundaries of conventional disks. In order to maximize performance, partitions need to be aligned on 4-Kbyte boundaries. For an example of the alignment procedure, see, FMod Alignment for Optimal Performance.
