I have gained responsibility over a system utilizing several HP ProLiant DL380 servers. I would like to switch to RAID6 and use SSDs, of which we have dozens (Samsung Evo 860). Unfortunately, these SSDs are consumer level SATA devices, and the current onboard RAID controller in these DL380s, being a P410, will throttle the interface speed down to 3Gbps.
Taking all of this into consideration, could I simply purchase a newer RAID controller (like a P800) with a decent sized integrated battery backed cache to utilize these piles of SATA SSDs in a RAID6 array?
Edit: I mistakenly claimed my current RAID card is a p408i, when it is in fact a P410.
