ML370 G3/G4 - 400gb fileserver. sata?

hi,
i plan on installing a fileserver in a small branch office.
id like the server to be most reliable and redundant, for there will be no admin left when im gone.
i was thinking of an ml370 and 4x200gb sata disks in a hot-replacement/raid10 array.
maybe 2 small raid1 scsi drives for the os.

which sata-controller should i use?
is there a way to replace the 6xscsi backplane with a 6xsata one?

thx in advance,
stephan

hello stephan, there are one way from HP for the ML370 to support SATA configuration, with HP StorageWorks Modular Smart Array 20(part#335921-B21), but is external.

The SCSI backplane is only for Hot-Pluggable universal hard-drives.
