Although you may be as horrified as I am to find out that a rather
large computer company is marketing a high feature disk device that
can come with SCSI *or* SATA drives depending on how much you want to
spend. This is a device aimed squarely at the high end. Kind of ironic
in the end when you know these things are going to be connected to FC
which is talking SCSI... The world is a crazy place.
