the OP said SAS/SATA without specifying how many ports, or what sort of 
connectors, or internal vs external...  I've already suggested the range 
of LSI Logic boards to fit various IO scenarios.  

Now, if what he really wants is just a bunch of SATA ports then I am at 
a loss,   my 2U servers tend to use SAS or FC (or ni older boxes, SCSI) 
storage.  The Marvell SATA chips have a problem-prone history.   I've 
used SIL stuff on desktops, but i don't think they are server grade.
