P440ar + SSD is it worth?

Hi, 

I am using  DL360 with P440ar + HPE 1TB SAS HDD*2  (RAID 1)

But I am considering replacing it with SSD because of the speed of reaction.

The SSD will be HPE SATA 800GB

Is it worth changing? 

And please recommend high performance RAID configuration using SSD.

Thank you

Hello,

Please look in to the below document and information.

https://support.hpe.com/hpsc/doc/public/display?docId=emr_na-c04496202

HPE SSD Smart Path

The HPE SSD Smart Path feature included in the Smart Array software stack improves Solid State Disk (SSD) read performance. With up to 4 x better SSD read performance, HPE SSD Smart Path chooses the optimum path to the SSD and accelerates reads for all RAID levels and RAID 0 writes

HPE SSD Smart Path is ideal for read intensive workloads and is included as a base feature on HPE Smart Array P-series controllers

HPE SSD Smart Path requires updated firmware, drivers, and configuration utility

Hi!

1) Will the HP Digital DL360z Gen9 Server (controller P440ar) support RAID 10 with New SSD Drives of Western Digital such as SSD WD SAS 0B40320 WUSTR1548ASS20х ULTRASTAR DC SS530?

2)Which minimum version of firmware updated should be installed on?
