Your bottleneck is most likely your drive bandwidth.  Even with SAS drives,
you'll need to move to a raid 5+ solution with 6+ drives to continue to
increase the concurrent calls, or use a storage appliance.

To confirm this, install the tool nmon and use the v and d options to bring
up the resource usage indicators and drive busy/throughput statistics.
