Thanks for the idea, but I'm afraid this is not the case in my  
situation, as HDD is certainly capable of delivering the required speed.

(to be 100% sure I've just done traditional dd if=***big-file***  
of=/dev/null test on server, the same file I used for transfers speeds  
measurements, the speed is 42 MB/s)

Good luck!                                     Alexander
