That's a Mini-SAS SFF-8088 connector. Buy a breakout cable, that that's 4 eSATA connections.

Alex (Covecube) bought one, IIRC, and it works pretty well. 

So, at ~$55, that's a great solution for massive storage array. :)

 

Nice looking card. Sure would be nice if it also had an internal SFF-8088.

 

EDIT: I see they have one: http://www.addonics.com/products/adms6gpx2.php

And its SFF-8087. The connector is very different, internal vs external. 

 

However, for ~$100, you can get an IBM ServeRAID M1015 and "cross flash" it. Which gets you two SFF-8087 connectors. :)

Yeah, but I'm not so concerned about that. It's only a cable, so I would get another one if needed. I could get the card and cable for less than the price of the M1015 by itself. I don't need one right now, but it's good to know about it.

SFF-8087 is internal and SFF-8088 is external

 

Yup.

Yup.

OK so why were you looking for an internal SFF-8088?

Sorry, I was confused for a second about what you're getting at, then I looked back at my post. You're right, it should have read 8087. It was a brain fart typo. I fixed it.
