Look for Dell's "6Gbps SAS HBA" cards. They can be had new for <$100 and
are essentially rebranded LSI 9200-8e cards. Always try to look for OEM
cards with LSI, because buying directly from them is incredibly expensive.
Do these support eSATA? It seems unlikely.
I purchased an eSATA card (from SIIG, http://www.siig.com/) with the
intention to try it with Solaris 10 to see if it would work but have
not tried plugging it in yet.
It seems likely that a numer of cheap eSATA cards may work.
