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.

Good luck,
