Hi,

I have an HP ML350 which im interested in looking at putting an LTO tape drive into.  They mostly seem to have a SAS connector, however the ML350 only has 2 SAS connectors, connected to the 2.5" SATA drive bay.  Do I need to buy some sort of controller card to connect a tape drive?  if so, any recommendations?
