I'm going to say "talk to a vendor".
SolidFire was a high-IOPs startup that apparently got bought by NetApp. I only remember them because I got a t-shirt at a conference.
An option that might provide quick turnaround could be Silicon Mechanics. Their "Expert Included" approach is probably better than many whitebox vendors.

Subject: Anyone interested in a server build contract?
I've got a friend who's interested in having a physical server built at
a breakneck pace, with particular requirements: absolutely ridiculous
IOPS because storage bandwidth is bottlenecking his builds.
He wants "someone who has done this dozen of times before, can
absolutely nail the task, and is in it for the gig -- not someone who is
in it to learn something – this task needs to be mother’s milk for the
person with the right experience level".
He talks like that in person, too. :)
Let me know if you're interested, and have built some high performance
boxes a few times.
