In Holland it are indeed the smaller companies who supply such cards.
But luckily there is a very simple solution, all those big suppliers do
supply SAS-controllers. And as you may know, SATA disks can be used
without any problem on a SAS controller. Of course they are less
advanced and normally slower than a SAS disk.
So you can have a nice SAS raid card and insert SATA disks in it. And
than you can shop at any major server vendor I know off.
