Ya, but my point was does the SCSI-over-ethernet talk to a logical
(fake) view of the storage or does it talk SCSI directly from your
server, through the net/SAN, into the drives?  Forgive my severe
ignorance, I've never had the chance to play with one of these.

The answer to that I guess will answer whether or not you can chuck
SATA drives into the thing.

They still make SAS SSDs, no?  So I guess you could always do that, if
this thing will support them.  But then you have big $$$$$
