I'd like to setup a server at a remote site to act as data replication server. Seems like this could be achieved pretty easily and economically with a NW65sp7 server with a direct attached array of SATA disks.

If I were going to do this "old school" I'd get myself a SCSI RAID controller, a SCSI disk enclosure and and about $10K in disks and viola. But now with SAS and SATA I'm confused. What is necessary to accomplish this?

Anyone tried theis product, EnhanceRAID R8 U320 SCSI RAID Storage

Thanks in advance for any help you can give.
