Eric, one final question:
This obviously has 4 SAS/SATA ports (regular cables) and looks like it
would be great in Linux/SW raid for SAS/SATA disks.

This (8 port version):
Has two SFF-8087 mini-SAS connectors.

It states "two (4) x1 SATA cables"

Does this mean:

8087 ------------> 8087 (with 4 lanes)

Thus it would require the purchase of an additional breakout cable or
attachment to a special SATA/SAS enclosure.


8087 ------------> regular sas/sata/1
regular sas/sata/2
regular sas/sata/3
regular sas/sata/4
