i dont have budget to buy new SSD now... is there any chance that the read/write speed will incread? like something with the array controller or bios?

Hi,

You can just set the control card's cache module read / write speed.

A couple of comments here.

1. The Samsung SSDs have SATA interface. The P400 runs the SATA interface at SATA I, 150MB/s so that's the most you can get from theses SSDs.
2. The i/o to the server is done between the server and the P400 so the limiting factor here is the P400 and not the disks. I might expect some inprovement but not a lot.
3. Does the P400 have cache memory and if so is some of it configured as write cache? If you have no cache or no write cache configured on the P400, that would explain the 20mbps write speed (unless there is a typo).
