I bought one many years ago that has worked fine in Linux ever since.
I'm sure you can find one used, or a newer model new:

LSI Logic / Symbios Logic SAS1068E PCI-Express Fusion-MPT SAS (rev 08)
8 port PCIex x8

I think I had to buy the 2 x SFF-8087 breakout cables separately.

Anyhow, extremely reliable over the years.  I have a full 8 drives on

I use only JBOD and it does it easily/well.
