This is just an SATA backplane and so it shouldn't have any
compatibility issues.  If you want to do raid, you will still need a
raid card to connect to the disks in this enclosure.  You will need to
check the compatibility of the raid card.  The best ones are made by
3ware.  There was an extended conversation about them on this list a
while back.  Check the archives if you're interested.
