Pi with 2 sata ports


#1

Are there plans for a Banana Pi with 2 sata ports? It would be great for home made NAS devices.

Thanks, this seems right. Does it sport a true SATA or is it a USB to SATA bridge? The price is steep, but it does have a lot of bells included.

Related question: What would be the proper way to power two 3.5" IronWolf disks connected to these two sata connectors? Should I go for a separate 12V PSU or is there a combination to power the whole rig with an external pi adapter?
