This is interesting - any hints on setting them up this way?

I've got some Pi's running as 24/7 lab dataloggers, and all i've done so
far is configure MySQL to use the USB SSD. The Pi's are basically just
running a LAMP stack, and some python cron jobs, so if I moved Apache logs
to the SSD too - what else should I move to avoid wear on the SD card?
